U.S. air strike kills eight militants in southern Libya: U.S. military
 The U.S. air strike killed eight suspected Islamic State militants in southern Libya near the town of Murzuq, the U.S. military said Friday.

The strike took place on Thursday, the U.S. 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.
