Tripoli airport runway hit by bomb, not rocket, says Libya minister
The cause of the attack is unclear but gunfire was heard during the night in the capital
A runway at Libya's Tripoli airport was hit on Friday by a bomb planted there at night and then set off with a timer, not rockets as previously thought, the country's transport minister said.
"There was a small explosion," Abdelqadir Mohammed Ahmed told Reuters. Authorities closed the airport for several hours
after the explosion.
