The bodies of 10 militiamen killed in combat with the Islamic State were displayed in a Misrata, Libya, square Mar. 18, 2015. The men had been killed earlier in the day by Islamic State fighters at a checkpoint in Nawfaliyah, between Sirte and oil-rich Sidra. Despite vows to rid Sirte of the Islamic State two weeks ago, the Misrata militia has been too involved in its battle with forces aligned with the internationally recognized government in Tobruk to carry out its threat against the Islamic State in Sirte.
