The police chief of the northern city of Tripoli revealed on Friday that 14 people have been arrested in the assault on an KFC outlet and the Serail during protests against an anti-Islam U.S. film last week.
Brig. Gen. Bassam al-Ayyoubi said the 14 suspects had set alight the fast food restaurant and tried to storm the Tripoli Serail in protests over the low-budget film “Innocence of Muslims” that has fanned global Muslim anger.
Police have information about 22 other people involved in the assaults and a manhunt is underway to arrest them, he said.
“No one has (political) cover and security forces will go ahead in their mission,” al-Ayyoubi added.
One demonstrator was killed and 25 were wounded in the clashes with security forces last Friday.
