GHARYAN, Libya - Clashes between rival Libyan militia have killed one person and wounded 14, the latest in a series of incidents involving armed groups refusing to hand in their weapons.

The clashes began late on Friday and continued on Saturday.

"We received eight cases yesterday, including one dead who was shot in the head and chest, one critical with a head wound and six others lightly injured," said Ibrahim Karim, a doctor at the main hospital in Gharyan, 80 km south of Tripoli.

On Saturday, a Reuters correspondent at the hospital said he saw an additional seven people with gunshot wounds enter the hospital. He said he could hear gunfire nearby.
