The Nasr Basketball Club has condemned the assault on its team by police officers at Mitiga International Airport in Tripoli.
The club said a group of police officers physically assaulted the team in the airport while on their way home to Benghazi.
The club's administration held the security authorities, including the Ministry of Interior and the Tripoli Security Directorate, accountable for the "brutal acts."
It called on the Basketball Association to provide security for the players and staff of national teams in cooperation with the relevant authorities.
The Nasr team had played the return matches for the quarter-finals of the Libyan Basketball League against Al-Shabab and Al-Madina in the Great Hall of Tripoli.
