A Libyan security official says an airstrike, believed to have been carried out by the air force loyal to the country's elected government, has hit the only functioning airport in the capital, Tripoli.

The official says Thursday's trike targeted the Matiga air base, damaging the tarmac. It's the only functioning airport in Tripoli after battles between rival militias last summer destroyed much of the Libyan capital's international airport.
