Several armed men attacked the headquarters of Libya's National Oil Corporation in Tripoli Monday, killing at least two staff members, a security official said. In the first attack of its kind against the top managers of Libya's state oil industry, two of the gunmen were also killed and at least 10 NOC staff wounded, officials said.The attack came less than a week after a fragile truce halted fierce clashes between rival armed groups in Tripoli, the latest eruption of violence in Libya, which has been in turmoil since a 2011 uprising toppled Moammar Gadhafi.Oil production has been hit by attacks on oil facilities and blockades, though last year it partially recovered to around one million barrels per day.
