Tripoli - A German man was injured in an attack carried out
by gunmen on Western experts working in eastern Libya, the country's official
news agency LANA reported on Friday.
The group was on its way to test a new electricity station
near the eastern town of Ajdabiya on Thursday when masked gunmen in military
fatigues fired at them, Fathi Mahfouz, an official at the station, told LANA.
The German was wounded in the foot while a Libyan driver was
slightly injured, added the official.
A Swiss expert escaped unhurt.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for the assault.
Libya's new leaders have been struggling to assert their
authority and re-establish security in the North African country since the
overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
