Foreign ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham denounced the bomb attack on the residence of the ambassador to Libya on Sunday, saying there has been "no loss of life or property" in the incident, Fars news agency reported.

Two bombs went off at the gate of the ambassador's house in the Libyan capital Tripoli.

"Two devices were laid, one exploded first and then the other. The point of the second bomb was to create confusion," Reuters quoted a Libyan security official as saying.  

The second device exploded some 30 minutes after the first one. The blasts caused minor damage to the gate.

The self-declared Islamic State (IS) terrorist group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.
