Libya’s Special Deterrence Force on Tuesday freed Mahmoud Hamza, the commander of the 444 Brigade whose detention on Monday triggered fierce fighting in Tripoli, a source in each faction said.

There was no let-up in the sound of fighting in central areas of Tripoli immediately after Hamza’s release, Reuters witnesses in the city said.
