Sadness and fear are etched into the faces of those lining up for food near the front line of fighting that is raging on the outskirts of Libya's capital.One of those who have sought refuge in a district town hall is Fatma al-Naami, a 49-year-old widow who just lost her only child when her house was bombed.Since April 4, gunfire and explosions have rocked the southern outskirts of Tripoli, amid an attack from strongman Khalifa Haftar and his self-styled Libyan National Army.Pushing back against his offensive are forces of the internationally recognized Government of National Unity headquartered in the capital.Abdessalam says he is "lucky" to have found refuge in a university residence near the town hall.
