Fighters attack Libyan government HQ

A defence ministry spokesperson confirmed there were dead and injured, but he did not know casualty numbers.

“Many men encircled the building and opened fire against it with weapons including anti-aircraft cannons,” a government employee present during the attack told the AFP news agency.

Several lorries mounted with anti-aircraft guns surrounded the building in central Tripoli, blocking traffic, the witnesses said.

Al Jazeera’s Omar al Saleh, reporting from Tripoli, said the rebels came from the Nafusa mountains and that they were still surrounding the building.

He said the decision by the interim government to halt stipends, citing “mass corruption and fraud”, angered the former fighters.
