Clashes have broken out in eastern Libya between Daesh and al-Qaeda militants after an al-Qaeda leader was killed by masked gunmen, AP reports.
Nasr Akr, a leader of the al-Qaeda linked group operating in Libya, was assassinated in the eastern province of Dama.
The group, known as the Shura Council of Darna's Jihadis, announced his killing in a statement on Wednesday, blaming Daesh militants for the attack and vowing retaliation, AP reported.
Witnesses said the fighting between the two militant groups has killed at least nine Daesh members.
