A power struggle between rival governments provokes street fighting in Tripoli.

After two years of relative peace, fighting has returned to the Libyan capital. Dozens have been killed in street fighting between militias in central Tripoli.

A dispute escalates over who should rule the North African country. The militia is divided between those supporting the UN-recognized government of Tripoli and those supporting a rival parliament based in the eastern city of Tobruk.

For months, the prime minister of the Eastern regime has tried to enter the capital and impose his powers.

Years of negotiations, mediation and ceasefires failed to bring peace after former leader Muammar Gaddafi was sacked in 2011.

Is there a way out of the chaos?
