Renewed tribal clashes in the Libyan city of Kufra have claimed at least 47 lives and left more than 100 others wounded in three days, local leaders and a medic told AFP on Saturday.
“Thirty-two have been killed this week in the two Toubou residential areas,” a medic treating Toubou casualties in Kufra told AFP.
“The number of wounded exceeds 100. Women and children make up more than half of the injured, with the majority of them hurt by mortar fire,” added doctor Taher Wehli.
The medic said his clinic had documented eight deaths on Saturday alone.
Tribal leader Hussein Sake said the shelling against Toubou areas in the desert city was ongoing and unrelenting.
