BENGHAZI, Libya, June 15 (Reuters) - Four people have been killed and 14 wounded in clashes in Libya's Benghazi and its suburbs between forces belonging to a renegade general and Islamist militants, medical officials said on Sunday.

Power went off in the port city after rockets hit the Benina electricity plant which supplies Benghazi and neighbouring towns, residents and state news agency LANA said.

Residents said they could hear war planes circling Libya's second-largest city. (Reporting by Ayman al-Warfalli and Ahmed Elumami; Writing by Ulf Laessing; Editing by Erica Billingham)
