BENGHAZI, Libya — A Libyan militia loyal to the Islamist-backed government in Tripoli says it arrested the leader of the Islamic State branch for a western city bombed by U.S. forces last week.
The Special Deterrent Force says in a Facebook post Thursday that it detained the city of Sabratha's IS leader named Mohammed Saad al-Tajouri and killed dozens of IS members in a gunbattle. Al-Tajouri was also known as Abu Sulieman.
