Tripoli violence: People look for escape routes

Warlord Khalifa Haftar's forces have fired missiles towards forces loyal to the UN-recognised government in Ain Zara neighbourhood.

    Fighting around Tripoli has split Libya's capital into different worlds.

    But in the centre of the city, young Libyans are, for now, using the main square as a race track before it becomes a battlefield.
