Islamists Resume Assault on Main Libyan Airport

(AFP) Islamist militia resumed their assault on Libya’s main international airport on Sunday two days after an abortive truce with the rival former rebels that control it, a security official said.

Islamist militia first attacked the airport last Sunday, forcing a halt to all flights.

Their continued offensive has caused extensive damage to planes and airport infrastructure that aviation officials say will keep it closed for months.
