Libya arrests three following Benghazi shooting

World Bulletin/News Desk

Libyan forces have arrested three people following a shooting attack at a military patrol in Benghazi, eastern Libya.

The three, including a young woman, opened fire at a military patrol in downtown Benghazi when they were intercepted on Gamal Abdel-Nasser Street, Farag Wanees of the Libyan army told Anadolu Agency Sunday.

He said no injuries were reported from the attack, which took place late Saturday.

Libyans have struggled to restore law and order to their country since the death of longstanding strongman Muammar Gaddafi two years ago.

The transitional government and its security forces have also struggled to contain armed militias that helped overthrow Gaddafi, but which held onto their weapons after the 2011 uprising.
