U.S. says air strike kills ISIS militant in Libya

16 Afghan policemen 'mistakenly' killed in US airstrike in Helmand
 A U.S. air strike killed a suspected ISIS militant in Libya on Tuesday, the U.S. Africa Command said.
The strike into the northwestern town of Bani Walid was carried out in coordination with the U.N.-backed government based in Tripoli, it said in a statement, according to Reuters.

It did not name what it called an “ISIS-Libya terrorist” but residents identified him as Walid Bu Hariba who hails from the central city of Sirte where Islamic State had its main base in the anarchic North African country until 2016.
Residents had earlier reported an air strike on a car in Bani Walid in which an Islamic State militant had been traveling. Photos on social media showed a white pick-up truck purportedly hit by a projectile.
