A Korean-run construction site in the Libyan city of Derna has been broken into and taken over by some two-hundred locals.
Seoul's foreign affairs and trade ministry said Friday that the intrusion took place at around 12:30 a.m., local time, Thursday, adding that part of the site was set on fire.
The ministry said the attack is believed to have been instigated by homeless local residents who are unhappy with the Libyan government's housing policy.
The same construction site was attacked and looted by locals last month…causing around 15 billion wonor 13.5 million US dollars in property damage.
The ministry added that the Korean embassy in Libya has asked the authorities there to resolve the issue.
