21 April 2015 - Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Bernardino Leon, strongly condemns the terrorist bombing against the Spanish Embassy in Tripoli.

The bombing is the latest in a series of attacks on diplomatic and consular premises in Libya, and serves as a reminder that the continuing fighting and political instability contribute to providing the safe ground for terrorists to operate and expand.

UNSMIL urges the Libyans to press ahead with their efforts to reach a political agreement to restore peace and stability, as well as strengthen the State institutions to combat terrorism.
