Tripoli forces retake former airport - minister

TRIPOLI, April 5 (Reuters) - Forces loyal to Libya’s Tripoli government recaptured late on Friday the former international airport in the south of the capital from eastern forces, the Tripoli-based interior minister said on Friday.

“Tripoli (international) airport was fully liberated,” Fathi Ali Bashagha told Libya al-Ahrar TV, adding that clashes were ongoing in the Qasr ben Ghashir area next to the airport. (Reporting by Hesham Hajali and Ulf Laessing; Editing by Andrew Cawthorne)
