Fighting erupts in Zuwarah, west Libya

Fresh fighting erupted in west Libya yesterday after two days of deadly clashes near the border with Tunisia. Former rebels from the western town of Zuwarah have clashed sporadically with fighters from the nearby towns of Regdalin and Jamil since Monday despite efforts by the interim Libyan authorities to mediate a lasting truce. Ayub Sofian, at the Zuwarah media centre, says he fears the fighting has taken on a tribal dimension. (INTERVIEW first on RFI)
