TRIPOLI/CAIRO (Reuters) - An air strike by Libya's internationally recognized government against the capital Tripoli on Saturday killed a senior commander in a force loyal to the rival government that controls the capital, a Tripoli official said.

The attack came a day after the official government said it had launched a military offensive to "liberate" Tripoli, which was seized by a group called Libya Dawn in August, reinstating a previous assembly.
