US Airstrikes Target ISIS in Libya

Today American warplanes struck an Islamic State training camp in Libya, reportedly in an attempt to target a senior operative from Tunisia based there. Libyan officials claim at least 40 people were killed in the airstrikes, but as of yet it's not confirmed if the operative is among the dead. Until now the US has mostly concentrated the fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, but Libya has emerged as the third stronghold for the extremist group. Gordon Lubold, Pentagon reporter for the Wall Street Journal, has the story.
