Libyan militias clash in city of Sabha

The main hospital in Sabha has been inundated with casualties from the fighting



Clashes between rival militias in the southern Libyan city of Sabha have left at least 25 people dead, officials say.

Fighting between former rebels and gunmen from the Toubou group reportedly began on Sunday after a militiaman from Sabha was killed in a row over a car.
Government forces have arrived in the city and are trying to restore calm.
Libya's governing National Transitional Council (NTC) is struggling to assert its authority following the ousting of Col Muammar Gaddafi last year.
Ahmed al-Hamrouni, a former rebel commander in the city, said machine-guns and rockets were being fired in the city's main streets, and that black plumes of smoke could be seen rising from Sabha airport.
Local doctor Ibrahim Misbah said five people had been killed on Tuesday alone and another 30 wounded.
"The hospital crew has been working around the clock since Monday night and the injured keep coming in," he told the Reuters news agency.
'Snipers' Sabha fighter Oweidat al-Hifnawi said clashes at first centred on the airport but then moved to the city centre.
"There are Toubou snipers all over Sabha city centre and the number of wounded keeps going up," he said.

Mousa al-Koni, a Toubou representative on the NTC, told Reuters that the clashes escalated after a group of Toubou men tried to steal a car from a member of the Sabha militia.
He said a reconciliation committee was being set up to try to stop the violence.
However, Toubou elder Issa Abdel Majid Mansur told AFP news agency that the government wanted to "exterminate" his people.
"We announce the reactivation of the Toubou Front for the Salvation of Libya to protect the Toubou people from ethnic cleansing," Mr Mansur said.
"If necessary, we will demand international intervention and work towards the creation of a state, as in South Sudan."
In February the Toubou were involved in deadly clashes with another tribe in the remote south-eastern oasis of al-Kufra.
Members of the tribe live mainly in Chad but are also found in Libya, Niger and Sudan.
The NTC has struggled to persuade the various militias who fought Col Gaddafi to lay down their arms and join the armed forces and police.
NTC officials said national army forces had been deployed in the city and were also trying to restore order.

The number of victims of tribal clashes in the south of Libya has reached 50 people. The epicenter of the clashes is the fourth largest city in the country Sabha.

The ongoing armed clashes there between the Awlad-Suleiman and Toubou Tribes erupted on Monday night after a member of the tribes was killed.

Inter-ethnic conflicts in Libya have been frequent after the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi last fall.

The country is being torn apart by powerful tribes seeking a federal state.

Revolutionary on whose side are you this time?

The NTC has so much credit,
it will take much more than that before they use up the credits.

So, whose side am I on?

Russian agents need not apply.

the NTC will succeed in uniting the country, bring peace and prosperity to the country.

Thanks largely to Sarkozy and his brave acts.
