Fighting in Sabha has also left 395 wounded and 180 people have been transported to the capital Tripoli for emergency treatment.   The Sabha fighting pits southern Libyan Arab tribes that reportedly had close connections to Gaddafi against the African Tabu tribe, which fought against him.   Libya’s Tabu have kinsmen living across the border in Chad, and the defence ministry said on March 31  that it sent a number of militia and national army soldiers to the country’s southern border in case other African tribes try to join the fight. It also dispatched airplanes to survey the area.   The Toubou are black oasis farmers by tradition who also have connections beyond Libya’s borders. They live in southern Libya, northern Chad and in Niger, and have previously denied having separatist ambitions.
