Suspected Islamic State gunmen kill six in southern Libya

Gunmen on Friday raided a town deep in Libya’s southern desert, killing six, the municipality said, adding that it believed the militant group Islamic State was responsible.

A military source said the attackers had occupied a police station in the oasis town of Tazerbo, north of Kufra, until residents expelled them. The source also said the attackers were believed to belong to Islamic State.

The town – which was a resting point for tourists going on Sahara camping tours before Libya plunged into chaos in 2011 – listed six residents on its website as having been killed.
