News photographer killed in Tripoli clashes

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - A freelance photographer who works for the Associated Press was killed in clashes between rival militias in the Libyan capital Tripoli, a government official and family said.

The fighting broke out this week, breaching a shaky ceasefire brokered by the United Nations in September.
