Loy­al­ists seize IS bomb fac­tory

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Forces loyal to Libya’s unity govern­ment said they had seized a build­ing used by the Is­lamic State group to man­u­fac­ture ex­plo­sives in its coastal strong­hold. The bomb fac­tory is the largest to be cap­tured by fighters al­lied with the Tripoli-based Govern­ment of Na­tional Ac­cord (GNA) since they launched an oper­a­tion to re­take Sirte in May. They said the build­ing was in the south­east of Sirte, the home­town of mur­dered dic­ta­tor Muam­mar Gaddafi, which IS has con­trolled since June 2015.
