"The head of a Libyan Islamic State (ISIS) affiliate was killed during an airstrike on Friday, the Pentagon said. A U.S. airstrike targeted leader Wissam Najm Abd Zayd al-Zubaydi, also known asAbu Nabil, at a compound in Derna. He was 'longtime al-Qaeda operative and the senior Islamic State of Iraq,' the Department of Defense said in a statement. 'Reporting suggests Nabil may have been the spokesman in ISIL's [sic] February Coptic Christian execution video,' the news release said." (11/15/15)
