Libya has closed Benghazi's commercial port due to clashes between the army and Islamist fighters in the area, a port official said on Tuesday.

"All ship movements and discharging of imports have been stopped," said the official. The port is a main entry point for wheat, fuel and other imports in eastern Libya.
