Rockets fired in clash between rival Libya militias

ZUWARA - Fighters near the western Libyan town of Zuwara were firing rockets and large-caliber weapons on Wednesday, Reuters reporters at the scene said, in the fourth day of a conflict between rival militias.
The fighting has exposed how volatile Libya remains, six months after a revolt last year ended Muammar Gaddafi's rule, and how the new leadership is struggling to impose its authority on the country.Local people told a Reuters team which entered Zuwara, about 120 km (75 miles) west of the capital, that the fighting was less intense than a day earlier. The Libyan government said on Tuesday 14 people had been killed and hundreds wounded.
