Battle for Tripoli rages on south of the city

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Fighters from the U.N.

Recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) engaged in an escalating battle at the frontlines on Saturday (April 13) in the southern town of Ain Sara, as the conflict over the capital against Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) continues.

GNA fighters were seen chanting "God is Great" as they charged with machine guns, opening fire in response to LNA offensives.

The latest battle had by Friday (April 12) killed 75 people, mainly fighters but including 17 civilians, and wounded another 323, according to U.N.

Tallies.

Some 13,625 people have been forced out of their homes.

As well as the humanitarian cost, the conflict threatens to disrupt oil supplies, boost migration to Europe, scupper a U.N.

Peace plan, and allow Islamist militants to exploit the chaos.

Haftar, 75, a former general in Gaddafi's army who later joined the revolt against him, moved his troops out of their eastern stronghold to take the oil-rich desert south earlier this year, before sweeping up to Tripoli at the start of April.
