Libyan militiamen set Tripoli security HQ on fire, loot shops
TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libyan militiamen set a security headquarters building on fire on Sunday in central Tripoli and looted it as fighting raged with a rival armed militia.
Government-aligned fighters also looted shops in the Zawiya Street area which was strewn with goods and debris.
The fight started just after midnight when two militias authorised by the official Supreme Security Committee (SSC) argued over a detained member of one of the armed groups, residents in the southern district of Sidi Khalifa said.
