ALGIERS Feb 22 (Reuters) - At least 62 people have been killed in clashes in the Libyan capital in the past two days, Human Rights Watch said on Tuesday, citing hospital sources.

"While Human Rights Watch is unable to verify these reports, sources from two hospitals in Tripoli said at least 62 bodies, victims of clashes, had been brought into their morgues since February 20," the New York-based group said in a statement. (Writing by Christian Lowe; Editing by Jon Boyle)
