Two Serbian hostages were among the deaths of U.S. strike on Sabratha


The Special Deterrence Force in Tripoli has confirmed receiving the bodies of two Serbian nationals, who were held as hostages by the IS group in Sabratha and got killed Friday by the U.S. airstrike.

The two bodies arrived in Mitiga airport following the orders of the Chief Investigator in the Attorney General Office, who ordered all wounded and dead bodies plus their belongings to be transferred to Mitiga airport for investigation.

In November 2015, the two Serbian nationals, believed to have been killed in the strike, were kidnapped by IS militants as they were on their way to Tunisia’s Ras Ijdair border with Libya.
