IS Briefly Takes Center of Libyan City

A top Libyan army commander said affiliates of the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group briefly took the center of Sabratha, a western city and hub of migrants heading to Europe. Taher al-Gharabili told AP that his troops forced the IS militants to retreat early Wednesday morning. Al-Gharabili said the gunmen “exploited a security vacuum” by deploying in the city center as the military was preoccupied conducting raids elsewhere. He added that the IS gunmen left behind 12 beheaded bodies of members of the security forces.
