UN calls for immediate ceasefire in Libya after 32 people were killed during deadly clash in Tripoli

The United Nations has called for an immediate ceasefire to hostilities in Libya following a day of deadly clashes between political factions in Tripoli.

At least 32 people were killed and dozens more wounded during the fighting, the health ministry said.

Among the dead was young comedian Mustafa Baraka, an official said.

On Saturday, armed forces of the internationally recognised government tried to push back a convoy of militia loyal to Fathi Bashagha – the man who is recognised as prime minister by a rival, eastern parliament and is vying for control of the country.
