Libya PM convoy comes under fire, no wounded

The chief's fragile GNA has struggled to impose its authority, particularly in eastern Libya where a rival administration holds sway.

Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj's fragile unity government, formed following a UN-backed deal in December 2015, is backed by the international community

"The convoy of GNA (Government of National Accord) chief Fayez al-Sarraj... came under fire as it passed near the Abu Slim sector of Tripoli," said spokesman Ashraf al-Thulthi.

"All the cars were armoured-plated, and there were no injuries," he said, adding an investigation was underway to identify the assailants.

Sarraj's fragile GNA, formed under a UN-backed deal signed in late 2015, has struggled to impose its authority, particularly in eastern Libya where a rival administration holds sway.
