At least 21 people were killed and more than 60 wounded in tribal clashes west of the Libyan capital over the weekend, hospital sources said on Sunday.

Witnesses said nationalist militia from the hilltown of Zintan, southwest of Tripoli, attacked the neighbouring town of Kekla which supports their Islamist-led Fajr Libya (Libya Dawn) rivals.

The clashes on Saturday and Sunday left 21 people dead and more than 60 wounded, officials at a local hospital said.
