A bomb planted under an Italian diplomatic car in the Libyan capital Tripoli was discovered and exploded as police had cordoned off the area, diplomatic and security sources said.

No one was injured in the incident, which happened as the diplomats had stopped off to go shopping in the central Zawiyat Dahmani area on Tuesday afternoon, the sources said.

"The driver noticed something strange under the car and the police were called. The area was cleared and the car then exploded," one of the sources added.

A Foreign ministry spokesman in Rome said two embassy officials were travelling in the car.
