2 hostages possibly killed as ISIS battles Libyan militias

BENGHAZI, Libya -- Two Italian construction workers who were kidnapped in Libya last July may have been killed in the North African country during a clash between militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and local militias fighting them, Italian authorities and Libyan officials said Thursday.

Photographs of nine people killed in the clash, including the two possible Italians, were posted online after the gunfight, which took place on Wednesday near the Libyan city of Sabratha. Their identity has not been definitively confirmed yet.
