Agence France-Presse reported that the plane belonged to renegade general Khalifa Haftar's forces.

An official who spoke to AFP said: “The pilot was killed when his aircraft hit a building during a demonstration flight". The source said the co-pilot survived, but a child on the ground had died and several people had been injured.

However, Reuters reported that there had been three deaths and nine injuries.

The pilot has been identified as Rafa Al-Farani. Farani was from Benghazi, but had been living in Tobruk.

An air force officer who spoke to The Libya Herald said the plane had crashed due to a technical failure during a flyover in honor of another pilot who had been killed in at a plane crash a few days ago.
