Tripoli, 12 May 2013:
The office of the Ports Authority was is hit by two RPG missiles . . .[restrict]early this morning. No one was hurt but the front of the glass-covered building in Janzour was damaged as was one of the offices.
The incident happened at around 7.30 am before staff had arrived. The reasons for the attack are unknown. One member of staff told the Libya Herald that he thought that smugglers could have been behind it.
Diesel and petrol were being smuggled by boat to Malta, mainly from Zuara, but last month the authorities clamped down on it.
However, another member claimed that the attack was the result of a grudge by a former security guard. The assailant was a member of a brigade that had privided security but had then been replaced by another unit, he said.
Although there has been tension in Tripoli between pro-government and Isolation Law supporters recently, there has been almost none of the attacks that has been seen in Benghazi. [/restrict]
