TRIPOLI - A Libyan passenger plane was shot at as it prepared to land at Tripoli airport on Wednesday evening but sustained no major damage, airline sources said.

"As the plane prepared to land at Tripoli airport, it was hit on the bottom, in the lavatory at the front of the plane," a Buraq Air source said. "The plane landed safely afterwards."

The Buraq Air plane was on a flight to Tripoli from the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.
