TRIPOLI, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Missiles hit the only functioning airport in the Libyan capital Tripoli on Thursday, killing one worker, the airport said.

Mitiga airport halted traffic and diverted flights to Misrata, a city some 200km to the east of Tripoli, the airport said in a statement.

The airport has been repeatedly hit since eastern forces loyal to Khalifa Haftar launched an offensive to take the capital, now held by the internationally recognized government but there had been rarely casualties.
