SABHA (Libya) (Sputnik) — At least seven people were killed and 25 injured as a result of clashes that erupted between the clans in the Libyan city of Sabha, the head of the municipality, Hamid Hayali, told Sputnik.
"Seven people were killed, 25 wounded, including severe injuries that need urgent operations," he said, noting that fighting continues in several streets of the city. The official did not elaborate on specific reasons behind the conflict.
Sabha, with a population of about 100,000 people, is located in the south-western part of Libya. Relations between the clans and tribes in Libya remain tense after the overthrow of country's leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
