An unknown person fired a rocket at the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Tripoli on Thursday, Libya’s interior ministry reported.

Nobody was injured, and little damage reported, Agence France-Presse said. But investigators don’t know who’s to blame. Witnesses said attackers drove by in a car and fire the rocket, fleeing within seconds.

“An RPG [rocket-propelled grenade] was fired on the building, which sustained minor damage,” said Rami Said, a spokesman for the interior ministry, in AFP.

The ambassador lives at the complex, AFP said. The attack was the latest in a series of hits on Libya’s embassies and targets at diplomats.
