Islamist-allied Libyan militiamen have occupied the US embassy in the capital Tripoli to 'secure' it, just a month since the US evacuated personnel from the troubled north African country.

The Dawn of Libya militia bloc stormed the compound on Sunday causing minimal damage, Associated Press reported, but the commander said they had been in control of the compound since last week.

US Ambassador to Libya Safira Deborah on Twitter said a video posted online showing men playing in a pool appeared to have been shot in at the embassy's residential annex.
