A day after a United Nations Security Council resolution called for a lasting ceasefire, rival forces have clashed in Tripoli, Libya, causing new civilian casualties in the grinding conflict.

A new round of violence on the southern outskirts of Tripoli on Thursday left civilians dead and wounded.

Health Ministry Spokesman Amin al-Hachimi said, rockets struck residential neighbourhoods, killing a woman and wounding four other civilians.
