Libya clashes
Rome - Arab Today

Italy said on Thursday that two of its nationals had likely been killed in clashes between Daesh and local militia fighters near the Libyan city of Sabratha, Al Arabiya News reported.

A statement from the foreign ministry in Rome said photographs of the aftermath of the clashes included images of bodies that could be those of Italian citizens Fausto Piano and Salvatore Failla.

The two men were among four employees of Italian construction company Bonatti who were kidnapped in July 2015.

The ministry said the families had been informed and further efforts were underway to try and positively identify the victims.

There was no comment from the ministry on media reports that the Italian hostages had been used as human shields by Daesh.

Sabratha has been the scene of intense skirmishes between local militias and Islamic State fighters since last month’s US attack on an Daesh training camp on the outskirts of the city, which left 50 people dead.

Daesh subsequently seized control of the center of the city only to be pushed back to the outskirts last week. The two Italians were kidnapped in July 2015 in the Mellitah region west of Tripoli.
