Former revolutionaries clash in Libya

In Libya’s capital Tripoli, a clash between former oppositionists took place – local ones, on one side, and ones from the country’s third largest city of Misrata, on the other. Both sides were armed with submachine guns and grenade guns. 5 people were killed and many others wounded.

Both sides were armed with submachine guns and grenade guns.

5 people were killed and many others wounded.

Witnesses say that people from Misrata were trying to rescue their countryman who had been arrested for robbery.

After the civil war, many people in Libya still have weapons on their hands. Some former “revolutionaries” have formed gangs and are robbing civilians. The new authorities still can’t cope with them.
