Two car bomb attacks in Libya have killed at least 10 fighters with pro-government forces near Sirte. The militia are battling to oust Islamic State fighters from the city.

The operations center for the forces loyal to Libya's Government of National Accord said another 20 of its fighters were wounded. The two attacks took place to the west of Sirte, near a center used to distribute supplies to pro-government fighters.

Backed by US air strikes, they are fighting to clear the last pockets of ISIL resistance in Sirte, which the jihadists seized in June of last year.
