An air raid on Monday hit the runway of the Libyan capital's only working airport, witnesses and an airport security source said.

A low-flying fighter jet fired two missiles at Mitiga airport, which is in an eastern suburb of Tripoli and held by Fajr Libya, an anti-government Islamist militia coalition which controls the capital, witnesses said.

The security source confirmed the strike but was unable to say who was behind the attack.
