Deadly clash of militias in Libyan capital Tripoli

Four people have been killed and at least five injured in a firefight which erupted in the centre of the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

The clash centred on an old intelligence building bombed by Nato in last year's uprising against ex-leader Col Muammar Gaddafi.

The gunfight broke out near the building between Zawiya and Saidi streets.

The roads quickly reopened once the situation had calmed.
