Libya plans diplomatic security force after embassy attacks
Libya plans to create a special force to protect diplomats, government sources said, after a gun attack on an Italian consul once again exposed the precarious security situation in the North African state.

 

Unidentified gunmen in Benghazi opened fire on Guido De Sanctis's armoured car on Saturday. The diplomat was unhurt but the attack was a reminder of the Sept. 11 attack on the US mission there that killed the ambassador and three other Americans. (Reuters)
