Units of the new Libyan army have arrived at al-Kufra airport in the country’s southeast to prevent ethnic clashes and enforce law and order there, al-Arabia reports, citing the country’s military chief of staff General Yousef al-Mangush.

Clashes that flared up on February 12 between members of the Tebu and Zwai tribes have left more than 130 people dead and almost 300 injured.

The Tebu tribe lives in southeastern Libya, in Chad, Sudan and Niger.
