TRIPOLI - Libyan militias operating alongside the defence ministry shelled the former Gaddafi stronghold of Bani Walid on Wednesday, with one person killed and another 18 injured in counter-attacks, a local militia leader and a medical source said.

The hilltop town was one of the last to surrender last year to the rebels who overthrew longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi. It has come back into focus with the death last month of rebel fighter Omran Shaban after two months of detention in Bani Walid.
