U.N. calls for truce in southern Tripoli to evacuate wounded

TRIPOLI, April 7 (Reuters) - The U.N. mission to Libya (UNSMIL) called on Sunday for a truce for two hours in southern Tripoli, where forces loyal to the country’s rival governments have been clashing, a statement said.

UNSMIL urged a truce between 1600 and 1800 local time to evacuate wounded, it said, without giving casualty figures.
