TRIPOLI - Explosions and gunfire could be heard near a military camp in Libya's capital Tripoli late on Tuesday, witnesses said.

Residents reported several explosions near the al-Yarmouk barracks in the Salaheddin district but the cause was unclear. Gunfire and explosions later appeared to die down. Other areas of the city were quiet.

Tripoli had become calmer in the past two days after militiamen stormed parliament and fought for hours with other armed groups on the airport road on Sunday. Two people were killed, according to official data.
