Seven dead in air strike

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

BOMBS slammed into a bis­cuit fac­tory dur­ing an air strike in Libya’s cap­i­tal Tripoli, killing at least seven work­ers, in­clud­ing five for­eign na­tion­als, health au­thor­i­ties said.

The UN en­voy to Libya said it could be a war crime.

The health min­istry in Tripoli said the vic­tims in­cluded five work­ers from Bangladesh and two Libyan na­tion­als. Thir­tythree oth­ers were in­jured.

Tripoli has been the scene of fight­ing be­tween the self-styled Libyan Na­tional Army and an ar­ray of mili­tias loosely al­lied with the govern­ment that holds the cap­i­tal.
