Two Egyptians were killed and two others wounded when a service building owned by a church was bombed in Misrata, Libya, Saturday evening.

Unidentified assailants threw a homemade bomb at the building owned by an Egyptian Coptic Orthodox church, said Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Amr Roushdy.

Two of the injured have been released from the hospital and Libyan authorities are investigating the incident, medical sources told state-run MENA news agency.

Senior Egyptian embassy officials are in contact with the church priest and Libyan security services to take urgent measures to secure Church properties in the country.
