BENGHAZI - About 600 people have been killed in three months of heavy fighting between Libyan pro-government forces and Islamist groups in Libya's second-largest city Benghazi, medical staff said on Sunday.

Since the start of January, 34 people have been killed, most of them soldiers, and 23 wounded, hospital medics said.

One hospital had 71 bodies in its morgue which had not been claimed by relatives, said a medic.

The fighting is part of a wider struggle in the oil producer where two governments and parliaments, allied to armed groups, are vying for control almost four year after the ousting of long-time ruler Muammar Gaddafi.
