Egypt has launched airstrikes on “terror camps” in Libya in response to the slaughter of Coptic Christians earlier on Friday.
The country’s air force launched six strikes over its western border on Friday evening, with state media reporting jihadist training camps in the Libyan port city of Derna were targeted.
The area, in the east of Libya, is controlled by jihadists close to Al-Qaeda.
A large number of the victims were reported to be children, including a two-year-old girl.
