Gunmen have attacked Libyan Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dbeibah’s convoy in the capital, Tripoli, according to sources.

The attack took place early on Thursday as the interim leader was returning home, the sources told.

One of the bullets penetrated the windscreen of the prime minister’s car, but he and his driver escaped unhurt.

Exclusive footage showed what appeared to be Dbeibah’s car with a bullet hole in the windscreen.

The sources said the bullets were fired from a light weapon, probably a Kalashnikov.

Libya’s chief prosecutor launched an investigation, the sources said.

A source close to the prime minister had called it an assassination attempt.
