US airstrike kills two terrorists in southern Libya

16 Afghan policemen 'mistakenly' killed in US airstrike in Helmand
A US airstrike hit a house in southern Libya where militant "leaders" were meeting, killing two of them, a spokesman for the Libyan prime minister said on Saturday.

Spokesman Mohamed El Sallak, in a statement on his Twitter account, said the strike was "coordinated" with the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) of Prime Minister Fayez Al Sarraj.

The raid targeted "a meeting of terrorist leaders" in a house in the Ubari region, 1,000 kilometers south of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, said Sallak.
