Libya funerals: Crowds mourn fallen fighters

The UN-recognized government accuses Haftar’s forces of targeting residential areas with heavy weapons.

    Three weeks into the fight for control of the Libyan capital, the International Committee of the Red Cross has warned that the residential areas of Tripoli are gradually turning into battlefields.

    More then 30,000 people have been forced from their homes and aid workers are struggling to reach civilians in parts of the city.

    Meanwhile, crowds gather to mourn the capital's defenders, who have vowed to push back Khalifa Haftar's forces.
