Rocket hits control tower at Tripoli airport - official

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Several Grad rockets hit the international airport of the Libyan capital on Monday, damaging the control tower, a Libyan official said.

A Reuters reporter at the airport heard the sound of anti-aircraft guns and other heavy weapons. Rival militias have been fighting for control of the airport since Sunday.
