Libya rural areas restless, 14 dead
Tripoli - Clashes in western Libya have left at least 14 people dead and 80 others wounded in 24 hours, the ruling National Transitional Council said on Tuesday.
"Four people were killed and 35 others were wounded in Zuwarah," 100km west of Tripoli, near the border with Tunisia, the interim authorities said in a statement published online.
"Ten people were killed and 45 others were hurt in the [nearby towns] of Regdalin and Jamil," it said.
Tensions have festered in and around Zuwarah since the collapse of slain leader Muammar Gaddafi's regime last October.
