East Libya loses helicopter, two dead
A military official for the eastern-based forces said it was not clear if the helicopter was shot down or crashed because of a technical fault. The forces lost contact with the helicopter on Friday.
Forces loyal to Khalifa Haftar, head of the Libyan National Army (LNA), have repeatedly clashed in the central desert region in recent weeks with rival brigades.
The LNA has been extending its control west over the past few months, after largely defeating Islamist-dominated opponents in the eastern city of Benghazi.
