A general view shows fire burning at a fuel depot near the airport road in TripoliBy Aziz El Yaakoubi TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Rival militias fighting for control of Tripoli airport agreed on Wednesday to a temporary ceasefire to allow firefighters to try to control a huge blaze at a fuel depot hit by a rocket. After a fortnight of the worst fighting since the 2011 war that ousted Muammar Gaddafi, most Western governments have followed the United States and United Nations pulling their diplomats out of the North African country. Except for sporadic shelling away from the ceasefire zone around the fire near the capital's international airport, Wednesday was the quietest day in the capital Tripoli for two weeks, with less smoke seen from the blaze. "They are trying to get them to the negotiating table, we hope they will agree." It was unclear if the blaze at the airport depot that supplies millions of liters of gasoline and gas to the capital Tripoli was under control on Wednesday.

A carpenter works on a new home at a residential construction site in the west side of the Las Vegas Valley in Las VegasBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. economic growth accelerated more than expected in the second quarter and the decline in output in the prior period was less steep than previously reported, bolstering views for a stronger performance in the last six months of the year. Economists had forecast the economy growing at a 3.0 percent rate in the second quarter after a previously reported 2.9 percent contraction. A separate report showing private employers added 218,000 jobs to their payrolls last month, a decline from June's hefty gain of 281,000, did little to change perceptions the economy was strengthening. The economy grew 0.9 percent in the first half of this year and growth for 2014 as a whole could average above 2 percent.
