Libya reopened on Friday its airport in the main southern city of Sabha – in the southern region – which had been closed since January 2014 due to security problems, local media said.

According to the sources speaking to local media outlets in Libya, a commercial flight landed from the main eastern city of Benghazi in Sabha airport.

Southern Libya has been gripped by worse insecurity and chaos than the rest of the country since the toppling of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

In Murzuq town to the west of Sebha, at least 90 people have been killed and 6,500 displaced since fighting broke out between different tribesmen in August, according to the United Nations.
