Two rockets struck a runway at the international airport in Libya's capital Tripoli on Friday, forcing the suspension of flights, an airport source said.Since long-time dictator Moammar Gadhafi was deposed in 2011 and killed by rebels in October that year, the international airport has been under the control of former insurgents from Zintan, 170 kilometres (105 miles) southwest of Tripoli.The North African country's transitional authorities have so far failed to disarm former rebel militias or integrate them into Libya's nascent armed forces.
