Three vehicles were burned at the parking lot of the Saudi embassy in Tripoli, a source at the foreign ministry said on Friday.

The source described the Libyan authorities as fast in extinguishing the fire, which left no injuries or further damage to the embassy.

Initial reports say the cause of the fire was an electrical fault. Saudi Arabia sent a team from its foreign ministry to participate with the Libyan authorities in its investigation.
