Tripoli beset by bloody fighting despite truce

Renewed fighting has broken out between rival armed groups in and around Libya’s capital Tripoli despite a newly-reached truce in the area, leaving dozens of people dead or injured over the past week.

The violence erupted earlier this week, with two of the capital's largest warring factions linked to the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) entangled in street battles over control of the city.

Clashes between the Seventh Brigade from Tarhouna, a town southeast of Tripoli where the GNA is based, and the Tripoli Revolutionaries' Brigades (TRB) further escalated after a barrage of rockets hit several parts of the capital.

The two rival groups have been vying to take control of the city despite a truce declared on Tuesday.
