UN seeks peace in Libya amid Tripoli clashes

8 August 2014 Last updated at 21:18 BST

A UN delegation is in the Libyan capital Tripoli to try and help bring to an end the hostilities between rival militias.

Rival groups have been involved in a power struggle for the country since the overthrow of former leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

There has been fighting in recent weeks between militias - one established by the outgoing parliament and one controlled by the defence ministry.

Rana Jawad reports.
