Rockets Hit Occupied Libya Intelligence Building in Tripoli

Rockets hit Libyan Supreme Security Committee building

Sun Nov 4, 2012 1:27PM GMT

At least five people have been killed after several rocket-propelled grenades targeted the Libyan intelligence Headquarter in the oil-rich country’s capital, Tripoli.

The deaths on Sunday followed an exchange of fire between rival militant groups near the building of the Supreme Security Committee.

An unknown number of people have reportedly been injured in the violence.

At least three police officers were also wounded as a result of a blast that hit a police station in the northern city of Benghazi.

The city has been hit by a series of bombings and attacks targeting international convoys and government buildings this year.

The US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi came under attack on September 11, after protesters gathered outside the building to voice opposition to a blasphemous anti-Islam film made in the United States that disrespects Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three others died as a result of the incident.
