Libya's new PM home attacked - Mogherini

No harm but 'situation of extreme fragility'

(ANSA) - Libya, May 27 - Libya's newly sworn-in Premier Ahmed Maiteg was unharmed in a Tuesday morning attack on his home, Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini said.
    Attackers armed with guns and rockets fired at Maiteg's home in Tripoli where the new premier was with his family.
    "In Libya there is a situation of extreme fragility and the scenario is particularly unstable," said Mogherini.
    Maiteg, who was voted in by pro-Islamist parties, received a vote of confidence from the General National Congress on Monday, in spite of a highly contested vote and disputes over the legitimacy of elections.
