BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Islamic State militants and Chadian opposition fighters were responsible for an attack on the forces of eastern Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar in the southern Libyan city of Sebha, a military source said on Saturday.

Eight soldiers were killed earlier on Saturday in the attack on a training camp in Sebha, the head of the local municipality said.
