TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — The Libyan government has apologized for the mob attack on the Russian Embassy in Tripoli that prompted Russia to evacuate all of its diplomats and their families from the North African nation.
The Foreign Ministry said Friday that Prime Minister Ali Zidan and Foreign Minister Mohammed Abdel-Aziz visited the site of the attack and "expressed apologies for such irresponsible actions." It added that authorities will beef up security at foreign missions.
Russia says no embassy employees were hurt in Wednesday's attack, propelled by the alleged killing of a Libyan air force officer by a Russian woman.
An armed mob broke into the embassy compound in the Libyan capital, climbing over walls, breaking down a metal gate and shooting in the air.
