DERNA – The Libyan Red Crescent has retrieved 13 unknown bodies in the eastern city of Derna.

The Libyan Red Crescent confirmed that it had found eight bodies in the Al-Maghar neighborhood after being reported by local authorities. The remaining five victims were retrieved in downtown Derna and had been shifted to a local hospital.

The Libyan National Army has announced the liberation of Derna last June from ISIS and al-Qaeda-affiliated Shura Council of Mujahideen in Derna that used to control the coastal city since the overthrow of dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
