New clashes between rival militias in Libyan city

Tripoli, May 6 (Prensa Latina) The western Libyan city of Zawiya became the stage of new clashes between rival militias amid growing tensions caused by the existence of two opposing governments in the country, the press reported.

Security sources made statements to the Al Ain news portal saying that the fighting caused numerous dead and wounded on both sides.

Two weeks ago, clashes in Zawiya caused damage to at least 29 refinery sites, including storage tanks.

After a year of relative calm, fears of a new outbreak of violence have increased since early in February, when the legislature appointed Fathi Bashagha as interim prime minister in replacement Abdel Hamid Dbeibeh, who refused to step down before the elections.

In justifying its decision, the chamber affirmed Dbeibeh’s mandate expired on December 24th, the date initially chosen to hold the presidential elections, but was later delayed indefinitely due to various problems.

Dbeibeh, who still controls the capital, rejected this and assured that the Parliament does not have the power to choose his successor.

Since then, both politicians and their respective governments began a frantic search for internal and external support.
