Libya's internationally recognised government Saturday condemned a US air strike west of Tripoli believed to have killed a top Islamic State group operative and dozens of others the previous day. Friday's US air strike was believed to have killed Noureddine Chouchane, suspected of being behind the mass murder of tourists on a Tunisian beach, but it also killed two kidnapped Serbian embassy employees. Oil-rich Libya has had rival administrations since the summer of 2014.
