Libyan government forces reinforce positions in Tripoli

Military clashes have continued to escalate in Libyan capital as civilian death toll mounts.

    Forces loyal to Libya's UN-recognised government have fought back against renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar's fighters and appear to be holding their ground.

    But as the fighting continues, it has killed many civilians and made tens of thousands of people homeless.

    With regional and international players backing the rival factions, the battle seems set to continue.

    Al Jazeera's Mahmoud Abdelwahed reports from Tripoli.
