At least 21 killed in fighting near Libyan capital


BENGHAZI, Libya: At least 21 people were killed in fighting near Libya’s capital Tripoli Friday, military sources said, as the country’s rival parliaments met in Morocco for UN-brokered peace talks aimed at forming a unity government to end the unrest. Pro-government forces clashed with fighters from the Islamist-backed Fajr Libya militia alliance in Tajoura, 30 kilometers (19 miles) east of Tripoli, as the forces of the internationally recognized government launched an attack against the militia’s camp in a new attempt to regain control of the capital.
