IS militants killed in US Libya air strikes


Two US air strikes killed several Islamic State militants in Libya earlier this week, the US military said, the second series of strikes in the country in recent days.

In a statement, US Africa Command said the strike took place south-east of Sirte on Tuesday in co-ordination with Libya’s Government of National Accord.

Islamic State militants in Libya set up a desert army composed of at least three brigades after they lost their stronghold of Sirte last year, according to a senior prosecutor.
