Armed clashes downtown Tripoli kill two


Heavy armed clashes in Tripoli took place Saturday night and killed two while injured two others only some hours after the French and German Foreign Ministers had left.

Sources said that the two killed in the clashes were bodyguards of the Deputy Head of the Presidential Council, Ahmad Mitig, and that his nephew was injured as well.

Saturday night there was heard heavy fire exchange in Hay Al-Andalus area, where many blasts have been also heard, which is still unclear why and what for.
