TUNIS, May 24. /TASS/. Ukraine’s ambassador and consul in Libya were robbed by unidentified men when they were on their way from the capital city of Tripoli to the settlement of Ras Agadir near the border with Tunisia, Arab media said on Sunday.
Representatives of one of Libya’s groups, known as the Dawn of Libya, which controls the city of Tripoli, were quoted as saying that "criminal gangs" has attacked the Ukrainian ambassador’s motorcade when it was moving along a highway linking Tripoli and Ras Agadir. The ambassador had been accompanied by a Ukrainian consult.
"Criminal gangs" seized the Ukrainian ambassador’s car, mobile telephones and seals of the embassy and consulate. Some time later, the diplomats were realized. The Dawn of Libya did not say where the Ukrainian diplomats went after the attack.
The Dawn of Libya put the blame for the attack against the Ukrainian diplomats on "armed groups of Libyan tribes" who collaborate with the Libyan National Army under the command of General Khalifa Haftar. Haftar’s army officially denied its involvement in the attack saying such accusations were an "attempt to discredit the government forces."
Most of countries withdrew their diplomatic missions from Tripoli last summer after the Dawn on Libya had taken control of the Libyan capital city.
