Clashes between Libyan elite forces and gunmen killed six soldiers in Benghazi on Saturday, the army said, in the latest bout of unrest as the government struggles to control rebels from the 2011 uprising.
The interim leader of Libya’s army warned of the danger of a “bloodbath” as the unrest in Benghazi flared again a week after violence killed more than 30 people in the eastern city.
Explosions and heavy gunfire could be heard at about 4:00 am (0200 GMT) near the special forces headquarters and in Al-Lithi district, not far from the city centre, an AFP journalist and witnesses reported.
