Fighting resumed in southern Tripoli near the airport between Islamists and Zintani militias defending the airport. The police presence was reportedly scarce in Benghazi, where the Red Crescent collected at least 35 bodies from the Saiqa Special Forces base in Buatni that was taken over by Ansar al Sharia. Last night several hundred demonstrators marched to the Jalaa Hospital in Benghazi and temporary forced the Ansar al Sharia militants guarding it to leave; social media called for a day of protest in Benghazi on Aug. 1 against the Islamists’ attempt to take over the city. Turkish nationals have returned to work at a Sirte power station.
