GHARYAN, Libya - Fighters from neighboring Libyan towns blasted each other with artillery and rockets on Saturday, killing at least two people and wounding 36 in the latest violence between militias who refuse to disarm five months after toppling Muammar Gaddafi.

Interim Defense Minister Osama al-Juwali rushed to Gharyan, 80 km (50 miles) south of Tripoli to try to halt battles between the militias of that town and neighboring Assabia.

Libya's interim government is struggling to control disparate armed groups, many of which fought hard in the campaign to topple Gaddafi but are now refusing to hand in their weapons, saying they are suspicious of the country's new rulers.

A few kilometers from the frontline, Gharyan fighters were loading a tank with shells.
