Fierce fighting has erupted in the Libyan city of Benghazi, as the army attempts to retake the area from Islamist militias.

Smoke could be seen rising from Benghazi's port, where a ship was hit.

The army had asked residents in the central al-Sabri district to evacuate the area ahead of a major military operation.

More than 200 people have been killed in Benghazi since the army began its offensive last month.

Libya has been in a state of flux since Colonel Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011.
