TRIPOLI- Dozens of angry protesters tried to storm Russia's embassy in Tripoli on Wednesday after reports that a Russian woman had killed a Libyan army officer, a witness said.

Security services arrived on the scene to protect the diplomats inside the compound.
They were eventually able to disperse the protesters, witnesses told AFP, adding that no one appeared to have been injured in the unrest.
The incident comes two days after conflicting reports emerged about the circumstances of the murder of an army officer in the Souk Juma district of Tripoli.
Some sources said a Russian woman killed the officer for his role in the 2011 revolt against the regime of late dictator Moamer Kadhafi.
Others said the woman was the wife of the slain man and that the motive for the killing was a marital dispute.
