TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) -- Libya's health minister says that six days of tribal clashes in a remote southern desert town have killed 147 people.
Fatma al-Hamroush said Saturday that the fighting in Sabha has also left 395 wounded.
She says around 180 people have been transported to the capital Tripoli for emergency treatment. Sabha is 400 miles (650 kilometers) south of Tripoli.
Al-Hamroush says that there is an urgent need for medical supplies in Sabha and that the government has sent large amounts of emergency aid to the city.
