Five members of security forces loyal to the internationally recognised Libyan authorities and eight fighters from rival groups were killed Sunday in clashes in Benghazi, the LANA news agency said. "Five soldiers were killed in an operation aimed at repelling terrorist groups in western Benghazi, as well as eight fighters belonging to these movements," said the agency which is close to the recognised authorities. Citing a military source, LANA said that despite losing 19 men in two days, loyalist forces managed to seize Al-Marayseh port in western Benghazi and Al-Hawari hospital in the south.
