Libya interior minister escapes assassination bid: Report

TRIPOLI (TIP): Libya’s interior minister escaped unscathed from an assassination attempt in Tripoli on January 29, the LANA news agency reported.

Seddik Abdelkarim, who is also deputy prime minister, was in his car when “unknown gunmen fired a barrage of bullets” at the vehicle, the agency said, adding that no one was killed or wounded in the attack.

Libya has grappled with widespread unrest since rebels overthrew and killed long-ruling dictator Moamer Kadhafi in a Nato-backed uprising in 2011.
