Libya Car Bombing Kills 10 Anti-IS Fighters

A suicide car bombing on Thursday killed 10 members of forces allied to Libya's unity government who are fighting the Islamic State jihadist group, hospital sources said.

"Ten dead and seven wounded were brought in... after a suicide attack carried out by Daesh (IS) in Abu Grein," 130 kilometers (80 miles) west of the coastal city of Sirte, said a source at the central hospital in Misrata, from where the pro-unity government forces have launched an offensive against the jihadists.
