British jihadists travel to Libya to help Isis

British Jihadists are thought to have travelled directly from the UK to Libya to join Isis as the terror group prepares for its final stand in the country.

Isis fighters have been pinned down in parts of Sirte since forces allied to the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) launched an operation to dislodge them from the coastal city last month.

The city represents the last Isis stronghold in the country, and British fighters loyal to the organisation are believed to have taken up arms to help the group cling on to the area.
