    Air strikes by unknown forces in the Libyan city of Derna have left seven children badly injured and in need of urgent medical treatment.

    Security sources in Derna claim Egyptian fighter jets carried out the strikes in support of renegade General Khalifa Haftar. Haftar's spokesman denied the reports.

    A siege of Derna by armed groups loyal to Haftar has deprived the city of basic needs and medical supplies.
