CAIRO - An air strike by Libya's internationally recognized government against the capital Tripoli on Saturday killed a senior commander in a force loyal to the rival government that controls the capital, a Tripoli official said.

Salah Burki was one of the leaders of a faction called Libya Dawn that seized Tripoli in August, forcing the internationally recognized government to move to the east.

The recognized government had earlier confirmed an air strike on Tripoli and on the western town of Zuwara.
