AFP

Fierce fighting erupted around the Libyan capital's international airport on Sunday as the anti-Islamist militia that controls it came under attack, airport officials said.

"Rockets struck inside the airport perimeter around 6 am (0400 GMT)" interrupting flights, an official said.

"Clashes followed between the Zintan militia who control the airport and rivals who want to drive them out," the official added.
