Islamist fighters in the Fajr Libya coalition said on Saturday they have captured Tripoli airport after 10 days of clashes with nationalist militiamen. A statement shown on screen on An-Nabaa television, said: "Fajr Libya announces that it totally controls Tripoli international airport." The strategic site 30 kilometres south of the Libyan capital, has been shut since July 13 amid skirmishes between the Islamists and nationalist fighters from Zintan west of Tripoli.
