Fights break out near Tripoli airport in Libya

Three people are dead and flights are suspended due to fighting between rival militias at Libya’s main airport on Sunday. The Zintan militia were in control of the airport but came under heavy attack by what appears to be rebels from Misratis.

The Zintan militiamen helped overthrow Gaddafi in 2011 but the government is unable to control their continued defiance of state authority.
