The European Union (EU) on Wednesday condemned the bombing of the immigrant housing center in the Tajoura district in the early hours of Wednesday, calling for an investigation into the case.

"The European Union joins the UN call for an immediate investigation into the perpetrators of this horrific attack," EU Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini said in a statement.

Earlier in the day, the head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, Ghassan Salamé, called on the international community to "impose appropriate sanctions on who ordered, carried out and armed this operation," declaring the number of victims of the attack to 44 dead and more than 135 injured.
