KABUL: (Middle East Press) At least 25 dead and more than 70 injured following fresh clashes between the Libyan army and militia groups in the African country’s eastern city of Benghazi.
According to medical and military sources, the incident took place in Libya’s second largest city on Saturday.
Libya’s Red Crescent Organization managed to brave the fighting and save 118 people trapped in a clinic in the Al-Hawari region in southern Benghazi.
A spokesman for the organization said they transferred the people trapped in the medical center, along with its patients and workers, to a safe place.
Reports also said nationals from Bangladesh, the Philippines, Egypt, India and Chad were among those exiled from the clinic.
Medical sources say violence has claimed the lives of 700 people in Benghazi over the past four months.
