Of: Inside the story

Power struggles between rival governments spark street fights in Tripoli.

After two years of relative peace, fighting has resumed in the Libyan capital. Dozens of people have been killed in street battles between rival militias in central Tripoli.

This intensifies the dispute over who should rule the North African country. The militias are divided between those backing the UN-recognized government in Tripoli and those backing a rival parliament based in the eastern city of Tobruk.

For months, the prime minister of the eastern administration has been trying to enter the capital and impose his authority.

Years of negotiations, mediations and ceasefires failed to bring peace after the ousting of former leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Is there a way out of the chaos?
