Fierce fighting in Libya between pro-government militiamen and ISIS militants in the city of Sirte and an explosion at a depot near the capital, Tripoli, left more than 60 dead, a spokesman and a Libyan state news agency reported Wednesday.

In Sirte, the last bastion of the ISIS group in the North African country, today’s clashes killed 36 militiamen aligned with the newly-UN brokered government. The militias, mainly from the western town of Misrata, have been leading an offensive since early May to take full control over Sirte.
