Libya violence: Clashes at Benghazi port area
- In Tripoli, some members of the old parliament - the General National Congress - have continued to sit. They have appointed their own rival government, though this is not internationally recognised
- Much of Benghazi, the second city and headquarters of the 2011 Revolution, is in the hands of Islamist fighters, some with links to al-Qaeda. There are near-daily assassinations of officials, journalists and social activists
- Misrata, the third city and a major business port, is also loyal to the Tripoli authorities.
