Libya death toll 'rises to 140' at Brak El-Shati airbase
Reports suggest as many as 140 people, including civilians, may have died in an attack on an airbase in Libya.
It was originally thought 60 people died when a government-allied militia tried to take over the Brak al-Shati base on Thursday.
The UN-backed government's defence minister and the commander of the militia have both been suspended pending an investigation.
The prime minister's office has denied ordering the attack.
A militia spokesman said they had "liberated the base and destroyed all the forces inside".
The town's mayor said some aircrafts had been set ablaze.
