The Fiji government has paid tribute to one of its citizens killed in a bomb attack in Benghazi on Sunday.

Seniloli Tabuatausole was working for the United Nations Support Mission in Libya at the time of his death.

He and two colleagues died when the vehicle they were travelling in was hit by a car bomb outside a shopping mall.

Fiji's Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, Satyendra Prasad, said Mr Tabuatausole was a proud Fijian who gave the ultimate sacrifice in supporting UN operations in some of the most difficult regions of the world.
