Militants from Libya’s Islamic State (Isis) affiliate abducted nine foreigners, including four Filipinos, in an attack on a central oilfield last week and beheaded eight Libyan guards, reportedly.

The attack last Friday on the al-Ghani oilfield near the town of Zalla, 750km (470 miles) south-east of the capital, Tripoli, was part of a series of deadly assaults on Libya’s oil infrastructure by Isis.

Libyan guards beheaded and workers from Philippines, Austria, Czech Republic, Bangladesh and Ghana abducted; official says Isis is seeking control of Libya’s petroleum industry.
