egypt airstrike on libya

The country launched a fresh round of air strikes over Libya on at the weekend. Crystal Oderson has this and other stories.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for a shooting that killed 29 and wounded 24 Christians in the southern Egyptian province of Minya on Friday.

Hours later fighter jets struck eastern Libya.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Friday he had ordered air raids on militant camps in Libya, where he said the Minya gunmen had trained, though he did not name a specific group responsible.

President of Egypt Fattah al-Sisi says he will do anything and will not hesitate to carry out additional attacks wherever it feels these perpetrators are located.
