Libyan authorities say fighting between rival armed groups in the capital of Tripoli has flared up again, four months after a UN-brokered cease-fire.
Malek Merset, spokesperson for the Tripoli-based Health Ministry, says at least one person was killed and 17 others wounded on Wednesday.
A previous round of fighting, which erupted in August last year, killed at least 96 people, including civilians. The UN mission has warned against any breach of the cease-fire, brokered in September.
The fighting between militias allied to the UN-backed government in Tripoli and an armed group from a nearby town underscores Libya's lingering lawlessness since the 2011 uprising that toppled and killed Muammar Gaddafi.
Libya is governed by rival authorities in Tripoli and the country's east, each of which is backed by an array of militias.
