Egypt orders Libya air strikes after IS 'beheadings'
Egyptian jets have bombed Islamic State militants in neighbouring Libya, hours after a video emerged appearing to show a group of Egyptian Coptic Christians being beheaded.
The Egyptian military says six F16 fighter jets targeted I-S camps, training sites, and weapons storage areas in air strikes on Monday.
Libya's prime minister says the eight air strikes on the town of Derna, which is held by the jihadists, were co-ordinated with the Libyan government.
