TEHRAN (FNA)- Residents of the Libyan capital launched a general strike Sunday over a militia violence that killed nearly 50 people this weekend. The streets of Tripoli were deserted as the vast majority of the city’s businesses and schools were closed. Bakeries, pharmacies, hospitals and gas stations remained open. Al-Sadat al-Badri, who is head of Tripoli’s city council, said the strike is to last three days, AP reported.

Armed residents set up checkpoints throughout the city to protect their neighborhoods, fearing renewed violence.

Libya’s state news agency LANA also said Sunday the Misrata militia accused of being responsible for Friday’s killing of 43 people at a protest abandoned its headquarters in the Southern Tripoli neighborhood of Gharghour.

Late Saturday, a government-affiliated militia, the Libya Shield-Central Command, said it was in control of Gharghour. In a statement read on Libya’s private al-Ahrar television channel, the militia declared it a military zone and vowed to turn it over to the government. The majority of Libya Shield’s militiamen also hail from Misrata.


TEHRAN (FNA)- Libya’s deputy intelligence chief was kidnapped from Tripoli airport on Sunday after he returned on a flight from Turkey, two security sources said.

Mustafa Noah, the head of the agency’s espionage unit, was pulled into a car as he left the airport, one of the security sources said. He had no bodyguards with him at the time, Reuters reported.

Libya’s government is struggling to keep order as rival militias, fighters and extremist militants refuse to disarm two years after they helped oust Muammar Gaddafi in a NATO-backed uprising.
