MOSCOW, October 3. (Itar-Tass). - The attack on the Russian Embassy in Libya was likely committed on no political grounds, a source in the Kremlin told Itar-Tass.
“As far as I know, this situation emerged at a mundane level,” the official from Russian President’s office said. “Luckily, none of the embassy employees was injured,” he added.
About ten people were participating in an attack on the Russian Embassy in the Libyan capital of Tripoli on Wednesday evening. The gunmen drove up to the diplomatic mission in two cars. At first they opened fire at a service car of the embassy parked nearby, then at the embassy. As long as the law enforcers arrived at the incident site, the attackers escaped. No Russian diplomats were injured.
Earlier, media reported that the conflict emerged allegedly because of the murder of a Libyan citizen committed, as supposed, by a Russian female that immigrated to Libya for a permanent residency.
