More Than 50 Killed in Gov't, Militant Clashes in Libya

At least 36 people were killed in Benghazi, Libya, during clashes between Libyan Special Forces and Islamist militants on Saturday night and Sunday morning, medical and security sources said. Another 23 Egyptian workers were killed when a rocket hit their home on Saturday during a clash between militias battling over the city's main airport, the Egyptian state news agency reported. The country has recently descended into its deadliest violence since 2011, prompting the United States, the United Nations and Turkey to pull their diplomatic staff out of the country.
