Two Serbian diplomats held hostage since November were killed in US air strikes on ISIS training camp in Libya

Two Serbian diplomats held hostage in Libya since November were among the dozens killed in Friday’s US air strikes on an Islamic State camp, Serbian officials said.

The raids targeted positions of the Islamic State group in the city of Sabratha, near the Tunisian border.

A hospital in Sabratha has been tasked with the grim job of sorting out the bodies of those killed in the attack.

Rows of bodies in plastic bags, some of which have already been labelled and identified, were pictured in the corridors of the hospital on the day following the attack.
