In Libya, forces loyal to the unity government say they have made significant gains in residential districts of Sirte, as they battle to oust ISIL fighters.
A spokesman for the government-backed brigades, said they were securing a neighbourhood, just south of central coastal city. The port and other parts of Sirte are also thought to have been recaptured.
Dozens of troops and ISIL aligned-fighters were reportedly killed in the offensive.
