New clashes erupted on Tuesday between rival factions fighting for control of Libya's biggest oil ports Es Sider and Ras Lanuf, killing at least 10 people, the two sides said.Libya's internationally-recognised government under Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni and the elected House of Representatives have been based in the east since a group called Libya Dawn seized Tripoli last summer, set up its own administration and reinstated the old parliament.On Monday, U.N. Special Envoy Bernadino Leon visited Tripoli to discuss with the rival assembly there restarting the talks within days inside Libya.Last month, the United Nations managed to bring some members of the factions to talks in Geneva but the Tripoli-based parliament wanted the dialogue to take place inside Libya.
