Libya is a main departure point for migrants from Africa fleeing poverty and war and trying to reach Italy by boat, but many get picked up by the Libyan coast guard supported by the European Union, which wants to stop migration.

Thousands of migrants are held in government-run detention centers in western Libya in what human rights groups and the United Nations say are often inhuman conditions.

Tajoura, east of Tripoli's center, is home to several military camps of forces allied to Libya's internationally recognized government, which have been targeted by air strikes for weeks.

On Monday, Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA), which is allied to a parallel government, said it would start heavy air strikes on targets in Tripoli after "traditional means" of war had been exhausted.

An LNA official denied his force had hit the detention center, saying militias allied to Tripoli had shelled it after a precision air strike by the LNA on a camp.

The LNA air campaign has failed to take Tripoli in three months of fighting, and last week LNA lost its main forward base in Gharyan, which was taken back by Tripoli forces last week.

Both sides enjoy military support from regional powers. The LNA for years has been supplied by the United Arab Emirates and Egypt, while Turkey recently shipped arms to Tripoli to stop Haftar's assault, diplomats say.

The conflict threatens to allow Islamist militants to fill a security void, disrupt oil supplies, boost migration across the Mediterranean to Europe, and scupper U.N. plans for an election to end rivalries between parallel administrations in east and west.

Mad Cow Disease remains Britain's biggest ever food scandal and fears remain that a second wave is on the horizon - with devastating consequences. It's a worrying prospect that's explored in a hard-hitting documentary on BBC2 tonight. Claire never got the chance to forge a career, plan her wedding or have children. Instead the girl who her mum laughingly states would have been a 'bridezilla', given the chance, planned her own funeral. 'She wanted the whole sleeping beauty thing, centre of attention and why shouldn't she?' asks Annie, her voice cracking. 'She wasn't going to have a wedding, so that was her day.
