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.

    I thought that's what you chose for, I know most of Libyan people they wish they could turn back the clock to bring back the only leader (Muamar Khadaffi) who can unite all the tribe in Libya.

      Sipho aka thatdisturbedbrotherfromthestates, The only connection you got with Africa, is that your great great grandfather ended up in America. If he and the rest of your family failed to make a success from this , is not our fault. So keep your HATRED and RACISM there where you are. You know NOTHING about this continent. You are an enemy of Africa!!!!!

      This time last year it was on the world news section now that it's all clear that it was a NATO/UN/CIA destabilization effort it has been moved to the Africa section as another restless African country. The world deserves to know that it's not all rosy in Libya after this so called revolution and I think any South African supporting military interventions or regime change through war should be ashamed of themselves because they better than anyone else know that peace through dialogue is the best solution.

      As Libya is in Africa, it has always been on the Africa section. Off course , dialoque is always the better option. But what does one do when an unstable dictator starts to threathen his opposition; "The blood of the "rebels" ( aka his opposition ) will flow in the streets of Libya"!!! And; " We will go door to door to flush out these rats, aka his opposition" !! And his ever so violent sons, are planning a MASS MURDER. Only after this WAR CRIMINAL gaddafi told his soldiers to make true on his threaths, and to start murdering UNARMED demonstrators, did the oppostion ASK -- ANYONE-- to help them. China has a policy not to interfere,and rather concentrates on conquering Africa economically, and Russia did not understand what was happenning......!!!!! In an uprising, it is not at issue if one supports a military intervention, but what is important, if one supports A DICTATOR/TYRANT/MURDERER OR THE PEOPLE OF THAT COUNTRY
