Gunmen attacked an interior ministry unit tasked with protecting Libya's outgoing government, officials announced Wednesday, as Washington readied a possible evacuation of its embassy amid turmoil in the North African state.Witnesses said a pro-Islamist militia was behind the raid on the interior ministry unit, which opposes the nomination of Miitig, himself targeted in an attack hours earlier.On Tuesday, gunmen attacked the family home of Miitig, who was elected prime minister this month in a chaotic GNC vote, after Thani resigned in April claiming he and his family had been targeted.The premier and his family were in the Tripoli house at the time but escaped unharmed.Successive governments have failed to control the myriad militias that have carved out fiefdoms across the country, and Miitig is Libya's fifth premier since Kadhafi's ouster.
