Rival Militias Clash near Tripoli Airport

At least seven people have been killed and 30 hurt in clashes at Tripoli International Airport, as rebels from the Zintan region who control the airport have been attacked by a rival group trying to take over the area.

It is not clear who the attacking rebels are, but Libyan media report they call themselves the Stability and Security Force.

Flights have been suspended amid reports of heavy shelling and gunfire. Several rockets hit the airport on Monday, damaging the control tower.
