Activists and medics say tribal clashes that erupted in southern Libya after three young men turned a pet monkey loose on a high school girl have killed at least 20 people. The girl's family sought revenge after the monkey scratched and bit her last week, and killed all three men along with the animal.

Abdel-Rahman Areish, the head of Sabha hospital, said 20 people have been killed and 50 wounded.
