US strikes in Libya kill more than 80 rebels
A US air strike on Libya has killed more than 80 rebels from so-called Islamic State (IS), said outgoing US Defence Secretary Ash Carter.
The mission, which dropped around 100 bombs on Wednesday, is thought to be the last signed by President Barack Obama as he prepares to leave office.
Mr Carter said those targeted were “actively planning” attacks in Europe.
On his last full day as defence secretary, Mr Carter said, “These were critically important strikes for our campaign and a clear example of our enduring commitment to destroy ISIL’s [IS] cancer not only in Iraq and Syria but everywhere it emerges.”
The strikes hit military camps run by IS and located about 30 miles (45km) south-west of the coastal city of Sirte – an IS stronghold until the group was driven out in December.
