At least 14 people killed in Libya clashes

Reuters report clashes in eastern Libyan town of Ajdabiya

At least 14 people have been killed and 25 wounded during clashes in eastern Libya between armed groups loyal to official government and Islamist groups, two medical sources told Reuters.

The fighting erupted on Thursday in the town of Ajdabiya, the same day as Libya's warring factions signed a United Nations-brokered agreement to form a unity government.

The fighting continue on to Saturday.

Casualties in the Ajdabiya fighting included civilians or members of groups supporting the Libyan National Army, said the sources who asked not to be named. They added that casualties from the other side were not treated in the town's hospitals.

It was unclear whether the Islamist fighters were affiliated to Islamic State militants.

The official prime minister and parliament have been based in the east since a rival group seized the capital Tripoli. Its government has been working from hotels in the city of Tobruk, about 270 km (167 miles) from Ajdabiya.
