Labraq Airport Reopens

Libya Herald reports that Labraq [Al Abraq] Airport has reopened after a 24-hour closure, with all flights now operating as normal.

The director general of the Libyan Civil Aviation Authority (LCAA) told the Libya Herald that the closure was due to a dispute about immigration control, not security.

Airport director Abu Bakr al-Abaidi had previously told Reuters that gunmen had repeatedly fired Grad rockets at the airport.
