Numbers killed and wounded vary with different reports but the latest report from the Libya Herald gives a total of at least 15 killed and more than 35 wounded in four days of fighting in the southern city of Sabha.
|The fighting is between rival tribes of Awlad Suleiman and Qaddadfa. The latter is the tribe to which Muammar Gadaffi, the former ruler of Libya, belonged. There was a brief pause this morning (November 19) when there was a two-hour ceasefire. The fighting is in the Al-Minshiya and Al-Madiya areas. Local residents confined to their homes say that their homes have been shaken as fighters use heavy mortars, and a tank cannon, as well as DShKM (Dushka) heavy caliber machine guns.|
