TRIPOLI - Angry Libyans armed with guns and a knife stormed a bus carrying foreign journalists on Saturday and a soldier fired volleys of gunfire into the air to disperse the crowd, a Reuters journalist on the bus said.

The attack reflected Libyan anger at severe gasoline shortages, a two-month-old NATO bombing campaign against Muammar Gaddafi's government and state media reports that foreign journalists misrepresent the news.
