TRIPOLI - Five people were killed and nearly 100 were wounded in clashes between rival armed militias in Libya's capital on Wednesday, Health Minister Nurideen Doghman said.

Loud explosions and gunfire rocked Tripoli late into the night - the second day of violence in the battle-scarred city, highlighting the rivalries between heavily armed groups that have plagued the country since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi.

Armed groups made up of former rebel fighters from different parts of the country have grown in power and ambition nearly two years after Gaddafi was ousted, and the government has struggled to impose its authority over them.
