Libyan doctors say fighting in the eastern city of Benghazi has killed eight people including three children.

Khalil Gwaider, spokesman for the Benghazi medical center, says the deaths overnight Friday were the result of random shelling that hit a park where children were playing as well as a school and other civilian areas, adding that five people were also seriously wounded.
