Fire rages after rocket hits Libya fuel depot

Italy has offered to help extinguish a huge blaze that has engulfed the biggest fuel depot in the Libyan capital, Libya's government says.

It would send aircraft and a team of experts to contain the blaze which has hit two tanks.

Libyan officials blame clashes between rival militias for starting the fire, described as "out of control".

Many people living in Tripoli are staying indoors, amid fears that the violence is spiralling out of control.

Rana Jawad reports.
