TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — A Libyan security official and the Turkish media say a Turk has been stabbed to death in the Turkish Airlines office in Tripoli.

The official said the victim of Friday's attack was an employee killed in an argument over lost luggage.

Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency quoted an airline spokesman as saying the victim of Friday's attack was the official in charge of accounts. It said however the motive was theft.

The two accounts could not immediately be reconciled.

Both said a second Turkish employee, a female, was wounded and is being treated. The Libyan official said a third arrived at the same hospital but it wasn't clear if her case was connected.

The official spoke anonymously because he was not authorized to brief reporters.
