Suicide Car Bomber Kills Two Near Libya's Misrata

According to state news agency LANA, a suicide bomber in a car blew himself up at a checkpoint near Libya's Misrata city on Thursday, killing two guards. The attack was against forces from the port city whose troops are allied with a self-declared government based in Tripoli. The Misrata forces are fighting Islamic State militants who have profited from Libya's turmoil to gain ground in the city of Sirte. Four years after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, Libya is in chaos, with two rival governments and their armed forces battling for control.
