Gunmen attack port in Libya's eastern Benghazi


CAIRO - Gunmen have attacked the port of the restive eastern city of Benghazi on Saturday, firing wildly with small arms into the area for hours, a security official in Libya said.


He said security forces and citizens blocked the city's surrounding roads after the Saturday attack, which left six people wounded.


The official added that the attack is believed to be a reprisal by Islamist militiamen targeted by the forces of renegade Libyan Gen. Khalifa Hifter. (AP)
