Popular poets carried out an armed attack on the Media and Culture Authority (MCA) in Tobruk government on Thursday.

Press reports in this regard said that the poets, led by the poet Naseeb Al-Sakkouri, raided the MCA’s headquarters in Al-Bayda city and forced the employees to leave at once.

In a statement, the MCA clarified that the armed poets badmouthed and threatened the employees, while one of the poets forced them to leave and shut the headquarters at gunpoint.

The MCA added that the reason behind the attack is the rejection of a personal request made by the attack leader, poet Naseeb Al-Sakkouri.
