Fresh clashes erupted in a Tripoli suburb on Saturday, witnesses and the Libyan government said, as the death toll from violence that erupted at an anti-militia protest topped 40.

More than 400 people were also wounded when Friday's protest degenerated into armed clashes in the capital that continued through the night, Justice Minister Salah al-Marghani said.

He said in a government statement the death toll was expected to rise.
