Video shows the aftermath of an attack on the Corinthia hotel in Tripoli Libya, popular with foreigners and diplomats. Local sources indicate that nine people were killed, five of whom were foreigners.

According to eye witnesses a bomb went off outside the hotel after three gunmen entered the building. They said that the three men were aged between 20 and 30 and were clean shaven.

They took one hostage and fought with security forces before detonating explosive belts, killing themselves and their hostage.

A twitter account with links to ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
