Fierce fighting raged on the outskirts of Tripoli on Sunday as militias continued to battle for control of the airport in what's being called the worst fighting in Libya since the 2011 revolution.
Clashes were concentrated around the airport, the airport road and a number of residential areas where militias have fought over the past week, residents said.
At least five people have been killed, one local official said.
The latest assaults were launched by militias from the city of Misrata and an Islamist militia umbrella group in the capital known as the "Libyan Revolutionaries Operations Room."

the Libyans need their dictator back.
And the Americans need their dictator gone.
They really were better off before Obama helped overthrow their government.
If I remember correctly Momar opened up his arsenal to weapons inspections. He was not a threat.
It is just Obama wanted to help his muslin brotherhood pals.
another obama/clinton cluster f*ck
Are there any good guys in this fight?
Well, there went the plane. Now what are they fighting over?
is there any downside to this?
Yeah. Qadaffy Duck was an evil mohammaden a$$hole but he was afraid of the US and didn’t want to end up like saddam so he gave us intelligence on al queda and the mb. Now they have control of Libya’s oil and weapons. Sorta like a pre 911 Afcrapistan on steroids.
Quaffing was indeed afraid of the US
Lest we forget that was because he got a harsh lesson from Dutch, Gipper, The Big Boss Man, President Ronald W. Reagan
Yet another foreign policy success by the Clown Prince nobama brain trust.
