Rival Libyan PM Bashagha flees Tripoli after clashes break out

Clashes broke out after Fathi Bashagha, the eastern-based prime minister, attempted to seat his government in Libya’s capital Tripoli on Tuesday and forced him to flee the city.

The U.N. special adviser on Libya, Stephanie Williams, urged calm and for rival parties to engage in talks to resolve their disputes.

Over the weekend, rival militias also clashed in Tripoli’s neighborhood of Janzour. No casualties were reported but local authorities said there was damage to infrastructure, including a power plant.
