The Libyan army goes on a state of alert in the eastern city of Benghazi after nine people including soldiers are killed in clashes between security forces and Salafi militants. The fighting erupted following an army operation against the militants from Ansar al-Sharia group that lasted for several hours. Nearly 50 soldiers and civilians were also injured. The unrest comes after weeks of deadly clashes in the city and in the capital Tripoli. Local militias which were empowered during the NATO war on Libya have now turned against the state. Their refusal to put down arms has sparked public protests and the subsequent killings.
