Protesters stormed on Sunday the headquarters of the Libya Presidential Council of the National Accord government in capital Tripoli. 

The protesters are a group of employees who had worked for foreign companies which left the country due to the revolution that overthrew the regime of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. 

They did not receive their salaries for years. There is also a group of people with injuries who demand the dismissal of the minister for wounded, martyrs and missing persons. 

Libyan authorities are yet to comment on the incident.
