Fresh clashes erupted in Tripoli the death toll from a shootout at an anti-militia protest rose to 43 and the weak, post-revolutionary government appealed for restraint.

More than 450 people were wounded when Friday's protest sparked clashes in the capital between militias that continued overnight.

Prime Minister Ali Zeidan, who was briefly abducted by militiamen last month in an incident that underscored growing instability, appealed for "restraint and a halt to the clashes," warning that "the coming hours and days will be decisive for the history of Libya".
