In Sirte, the last bastion of the Islamic State group in the North African country, Tuesday's clashes killed 36 militiamen aligned with the newly-UN brokered government. ... Meanwhile, the state LANA news agency said an explosion at a depot on Tuesday in the town of Garabuli, near Tripoli, followed clashes with militias and killed 29 civilians." (06/22/16)
