German newspaper "Die Welt" has reported that German Foreign Minister, Heiko Maas came across an uncomfortable incident during his visit to the city of Zuwara.

The newspaper clarified that the security forces accompanying the minister had suddenly interrupted a press conference he was holding at the airport in the city of Zuwara, after spotting an aircraft hovering in the sky, which they feared to belong to Haftar's forces.

The minister and his delegation had to return to their armoured vehicles for a few minutes before it proved to be a false alarm, according to the newspaper.
