Libya's Tripoli airport hit by rockets

Libya's main international airport has been hit by a new rocket attack a day after fighting forced it to close.

At least one person has died and six have been injured at Tripoli airport, and 12 planes have been damaged in the attack.

The UN has announced that it will withdraw all its staff from Libya.

The BBC's Rana Jawad says the government is considering requesting help from international forces "to prevent chaos."
