"A suicide car bomber hit a Libyan police station west of the besieged Islamic State stronghold of Sirte on Thursday, killing 10 people and wounding seven, officials said. The attack at Abu Grain, on the coast road some 140 km (85 miles) west of Sirte and 100 km south of Misrata, showed the militants, although on the back foot in the battle for Sirte, can still strike outside the city. Brigades from Misrata are leading the campaign to recapture Sirte and have engaged in fire fights with Islamic State since pushing to the edge of the city centre last week." (06/16/16)
