Two rockets struck a runway at the international airport in Libya’s capital Tripoli on Friday, forcing the suspension of flights, an airport source said.

“Two rockets exploded on the main runway of the airport, causing damage. For security reasons, flights were suspended until further notice,” the source said on condition of anonymity.

The blasts took place at around 05:00 am (03:00 GMT), at a time when the day’s inbound and outbound traffic had yet to begin.
