Forces loyal to Libya's unity government on Saturday freed 13 foreigners held by ISIL in its former coastal bastion of Sirte, the forces said.

Loyalists freed a Turkish and an Egyptian detainee as well as 11 Eritrean women "thought to have been held hostage by ISIL," they said in a statement, using an Arabic acronym for IS.

Pro-government forces are fighting the last rebels holed up in Sirte after launching an offensive to retake the city in May.
