Libyan militias fight each other

CNN:

The Libyan war may be over, but rivalries rage on among some regional militias, leading to a mutual distrust that poses a challenge to the new leadership. Earlier this week, the rivalry was evident when dozens of fighters clashed at a Tripoli hospital in what residents said was the biggest armed confrontation in the capital in weeks.

The National Transitional Council needs to put a lid on this, quickly. If they don’t Libya could face a civil war, and end up an ungovernable hell-hole like Somalia.
