Libya death toll rising, says UN

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

The WHO says at least 121 people have been killed in Libya as armed groups fight for control of Tripoli. The violence has raised fears that the country may descend into a fully fledged civil war.

At least 121 people have died in clashes between the Libyan National Army and the armed groups under the Presidential Council, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Sunday.

The WHO said in a tweet that 561 others had been wounded since the beginning of the clashes.

In another, earlier tweet, it denounced “repeated attacks on health care workers, vehicles” during the fighting, which began on April 5.

Earlier this week, the UN said the fighting had displaced more than 8,000 people.
