Warplanes from Libya's internationally recognized government Thursday attacked the only functioning commercial airport in Tripoli, the capital controlled by a rival administration, officials said.The attack on Matiga airport, a military base used for commercial flights after the main airport closed following heavy fighting there last summer, damaged the runway but repairs should be finished later in the day, an airport spokesman said.The attack came days after officials in Zintan, a western region allied to Thani, accused the Tripoli-based government of launching airstrikes against its local airport.
