Libya's military said Sunday that ex-rebels have tried for a second time to assassinate the country's new army commander, as the two groups clashed near the capital's airport. The rebels denied the claim.
Revolutionary fighters clashed with national army troops near Tripoli's airport, leaving one person dead, officials said Sunday.
"Zintan rebels opened fire on the convoy from left, right and front," he said. "They think that the army wants to take over the airport, but this is not the case."
Army spokesman Sgt. Abdel-Razik el-Shibahy said fighters from the western mountain town of Zintan, who control Tripoli's international airport, opened fire on two occasions on Saturday on the convoy of Gen. Khalifa Hifter, the commander of the fledgling national army.
