Tripoli (Reuters) – Air space re-opened at the Libyan capital’s only functioning airport, Mitiga, on Tuesday an hour after it was closed by strikes, a witness said.

The airport has been targeted frequently since the start of an offensive by eastern commander Khalifa Haftar to take Tripoli from the internationally recognised government.
