 Clashes between Islamists and Libyan troops loyal to a rogue general pressing an offensive against jihadists killed six soldiers and a civilian on Monday in the eastern city of Benghazi, medics said.
The Islamists, including Ansar al-Sharia militants, attacked a base of elite special forces loyal to renegade general Khalifa Haftar, triggering the clashes, said the commander of a Benghazi air base that has also sided with him.
Medical officials at two hospitals in the area said at least seven people were killed and 11 wounded.
