Gunmen have attempted to assassinate the Libyan prime minister in an attack in the east of the country.

A spokesman for Libya's internationally recognised government said Abdullah al-Thinni's motorcade was attacked on his way to the airport in the city of Tobruk.

Arish Said, head of the government's media department, added that one of the PM's guards was injured but there were no fatalities.
