At least 10 people were killed in fighting for Libya's second city Benghazi Wednesday, taking the death toll from a two-week-old government-backed counter-offensive against Islamist militia to 201. Armed forces general staff spokesman Colonel Ahmed al-Mesmari said there had been "heavy fighting" as loyalists of former general Khalifa Haftar and regular army troops attacked the militias who have held the city since July. The jihadist group, which is blacklisted by Washington as a terrorist organisation for its role in a deadly 2012 attack on the US consulate, is one of the two main Islamist militias in Benghazi.

The UN envoy to Libya expressed serious concern Tuesday about violence in the country, calling again for a ceasefire as a car exploded outside a police station in the eastern city of Benghazi. Libya has been rocked by fighting between militias in the west and in Benghazi, where troops are trying to dislodge Islamists who control most of what was the cradle of the 2011 uprising that ousted dictator Moamer Kadhafi. Bernardino Leon, at a press conference in the capital, which is also in the hands of militias, said the "serious concern today is the situation on the ground in Benghazi and in Jebel Nefoussa, where the ceasefire was not respected." Southwest of Tripoli, in the Jebel Nefoussa region, clashes broke out in earlier this month when pro-government militia from the hill town of Zintan attacked the twin towns of Kekla and Al-Kalaa, which support the Islamist-led Fajr Libya militia.
