Rival militias clashed south of the capital on Friday, firing machine guns and rockets at one another in fighting that left at least two people dead, officials said. The clash underscored the tenuous security situation in the North African nation since revolutionary forces overthrew the regime of Gaddafi. Libya’s new leaders are still struggling to rein in the various militias that played a key role in toppling Gaddafi but have largely refused so far to disarm or submit to the interim government’s authority. Friday’s violence pitted fighters from the town of Gharyan, 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Tripoli, against a militia from al-Asabia, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) to the southwest. Ahmed al-Sharif of the Gharyan militia said his fighters had gone to arrest people suspected of having ties to the former regime. Al-Asabia fighters refused to hand the suspects over, triggering a shootout that saw the two sides firing guns and rockets at each other. Medic Mohammed Hussein of the Gharyan hospital said two fighters were killed and eight people wounded, at least one of them a civilian.

NTC declares the West a military zone
The National Transitional Council has ordered the military to use “all means necessary” to end clashes in Libya’s west. Tripoli also called for the creation of humanitarian corridors and a fact-finding mission. Libya’s transitional government on Saturday declared the west of the vast north-African country a military zone, deploying troops to impose a ceasefire on rival groups that have engaged in lethal clashes over the past six days. The clashes between fighters from the town of Zintan and members of the El-Mashashia tribe have killed 14 people and wounded another 89 this week, the interim government reported on Wednesday. The government has ordered the army chief and the interior ministry to consider the area of clashes a military zone and to use force and all means necessary to stop any shooting against innocent civilians”. It remains unclear what exactly triggered the current round of violence, but sources cited by the news agency AFP said that the clashes erupted when a Zintan resident was killed by Mashashia tribesman at a roadblock . The tribesmen, meanwhile, accuse Zintan fighters of shelling their village, Sheguiga, with tank and rocket fire.
