Clashes erupt in Libya`s capital, 1 killed
Tripoli: A clash has erupted in Libya`s
capital, Tripoli, between a militia and residents, killing at
least one person.
The fighting involves a powerful militia from Zintan in
Libya`s western mountains and armed residents of a Tripoli
neighbourhood once loyal to ousted dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
The well-equipped fighters from Zintan are one of many
militias outside government control.
Zintan rebel commander Mohammed el-Rebay said one of his
fighters was killed today. He said the two sides are firing
automatic rifles at each other.
The clashes are taking place in Tripoli`s Abu Selim
neighbourhood, a pro-Gaddafi stronghold.
The opposition took control of the city in August and
later captured and killed Gaddafi.
After Tripoli fell, the Zintan rebels took over a school
in the district and converted it into a military base.
