Fresh clashes in Libya leave at least 30 dead

PanARMENIAN.Net - At least 30 people were killed overnight and Tuesday, July 29 morning in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi during heavy clashes involving war planes and rockets between government special forces and Islamist fighters, medical sources said, according to Reuters.
