 SULAIMANI — The US air strike killed eight suspected Islamic State militants in southern Libya near the town of Murzuq, the US military said on Friday (September 20).

The strike took place on Thursday, the US Africa Command said in a statement.

Islamic State militants lost their Libya stronghold in the central town of Sirte in December 2016 but the group has retreated to the country’s vast desert to regroup.
