Libyan Army Clashes With Millitias Near Tripoli as Airstrikes Bomb City's Only Airport

Security officials from both sides of the Libyan conflict say army troops are battling militias west of the capital, Tripoli. Meanwhile, the Libyan army says it's carrying out airstrikes on multiple targets. Libyan army spokesman Ahmed al-Mesmari says airstrikes Saturday targeted Matiga base — Tripoli's only functioning airport — and two other encampments used by forces loyal to the Tripoli government. The internationally-recognized elected government was driven out of Tripoli last year and has been relegated to the eastern city of Tobruk.
