Gunmen fired shots inside the headquarters of Libya National Oil Co. (NOC) on Monday, an employee told Reuters.

The gunmen stormed the building in Tripoli and there were several casualties.

“Three or five gunmen were shooting inside the building [and] several people were shot,” an NOC staff member told Reuters after he fled out of a window.

Further gunfire was heard as security forces aligned to the Tripoli-based government arrived at the building.
