Libya: Prime minister survives 'assassination bid' after gunmen attack his car
May 27 , 2015
Abdullah al-Thinni, the prime minister of Libya, survived an "assassination" attempt after gunmen targeted his car in Tobruk, reports said.
The attack, in which one bodyguard was injured, took place as the prime minister was returning from a parliament session.
Al-Thinni has been struggling to govern the country from Tobruk after capital Tripoli was run over by militias last year. Initially, the plan was to set up the parliament in Benghazi, but intense clashes there forced the government to settle for Tobruk.
