East Libyan forces attack Sirte from air, official says

BENGHAZI, Libya, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Eastern Libyan forces on Monday mounted air strikes on a military position in the city of Sirte held by the internationally recognised government, an official told Reuters.

The Tripoli-based government said on its Facebook page that drones had carried out strikes against the positions of a force allied to it.
