Mitiga Airport reopens


Libya’s internationally recognised government said reopened Mitiga, Tripoli’s only functioning airport, following closure after rockets were fired at it.

Mitiga, east of central Tripoli, has repeatedly come under attack in recent months, forcing airport authorities to halt flights.

The eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA), led by Khalifa Haftar, said it shot down a Turkish drone in southern Tripoli.
