Tribal clashes in western, southern Libya, 15 dead

CAIRO (AP) -

Libya's news agency says tribal clashes in western and southern Libya have left at least 15 people dead over the past 48 hours.

This came despite a call to Libyans from the country's transitional ruler, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, to lay down arms and unite before elections next month.

The new round of violence comes after international and Western offices were targeted in a string of small attacks in central and eastern Libya.

Also Wednesday, Libya's government said an initial investigation of a four-member International Criminal Court team showed they committed a "security breach."

Libya is embroiled in a conflict with the ICC over who should try deposed leader Moammar Gadhafi's son Seif al-Islam. Libya's prosecutor ruled that the team should be held for 45 days. The ICC demands their release.
