TRIPOLI - Heavy clashes broke out in the Libyan capital Tripoli on Wednesday involving a brigade aligned with the army and a security force grouping former rebel militias that helped topple Muammar Gaddafi.
Loud explosions and gunfire could be heard coming from Tripoli's southern outskirts, where militiamen belonging to a security force known as the Supreme Security Committee (SCC) fought a brigade associated with the military.
Late on Tuesday an SSC commander was killed and four soldiers were wounded in a battle with the same brigade, led by men from the western mountain town of Zintan.
