Violent protests engulfed Tripoli on Sunday in connection with the deadly sinking of a migrant boat off the city overnight.
Survivors accused the army of deliberately ramming a navy vessel into the ill-fated boat, as the military said a collision occurred as the migrant boat’s captain was carrying out escape maneuvers.
Wails of relatives rang out from a Tripoli morgue where the corpses were being kept, an AFP correspondent said.
Dozens looked on as a group of men stormed the morgue and pulled out the corpse of a victim for burial, the correspondent said.
Outside, dozens of young men lobbed stones at two army tanks and at a nearby army checkpoint, prompting soldiers to fire live rounds in the air.
Gunfire meanwhile continued to echo across the city throughout the day as several key roads were blocked.
Separately, a man was shot dead in a dispute over a picture of ex-minister Ashraf Rifi.
