An unidentified armed man walks towards the arrivals hall inside Tripoli's international airport on June 4, 2012 after it was overrun by the al Awfea militia of Libyan ex-rebels who surrounded planes with tanks, grounding all flights following their leader's apparent arrest, according to officials. The official Lana news agency, citing witnesses, confirmed the 'assault' by gunmen who fired into the air and slightly wounded an airport employee, causing panic among travellers.
