LISBON, April 18, 2014 (AFP) - A security officer was wounded in an attack by four gunmen at the Portugese embassy in Tripoli overnight Thursday, news agency Lusa said.
The men fled when other security officers arrived on site, the Portuguese agency said, adding that the wounded officer's life was not in danger.
A string of attacks targeting diplomats and Libyan politicians have hit Tripoli. Earlier this week, Tunisian and Jordanian diplomats in Libya were kidnapped.
