    Fighting and shelling has continued in Libya despite calls for a ceasefire to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

    In the latest incident, shells fell on a residential area in Tripoli, killing one person and wounding several others.

    The rocket attack has been blamed on forces loyal to Gen Khalifa Haftar, who launched a siege on the capital a year ago to try to drive out the internationally recognised government.

    Recent international efforts to try to create a lasting ceasefire have failed so far - even as both warring factions have taken measures to try to stop the spread of coronavirus.

    Libya currently has eight known cases of the virus.
