27 dead after days of clashes near Libya capital: ministry

TRIPOLI, Aug 30, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – At least 27 people have been killed and
100 wounded in several days of fighting between rival militias near the
Libyan capital, the health ministry said Thursday.

The clashes broke out on Monday in suburbs south of Tripoli and continued
into Wednesday evening after a truce collapsed, despite an appeal by the
United Nations for calm.
