Libyan soldiers have been looting properties of foreigners in government-held areas around Tripoli, residents in Libya said yesterday.

Rebels battled with government forces in Zawiya this week as the fighting inched closer to Tripoli.

And now, thieves believed to be working for the government are attacking properties fleeing foreigners have left behind, including cars, houses and equipment.

"Some people dressed as military claim to be from the 32nd Reinforced Brigade of the Armed People, also known as the Khamis Brigade," said 42-year-old Rami Zerouali, who saw the looting earlier this week at a residential compound on the Swani Njila Road, 25km from Tripoli.
