Egypt releases cockpit video of air strikes in Libya

The Egyptian defence ministry has released video reportedly showing footage of air strikes on Islamic State (IS) targets in eastern Libya.

The strikes were in reprisal for the apparent beheading of a group of up to 21 Coptic Christians by Islamic State extremists.

Egypt says there will be more air attacks and is also demanding that the US-led coalition fighting IS in Syria and Iraq, extends its operations to Libya.
