Egypt and United Arab Emirates carry out secret airstrikes

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. officials say Egypt and the United Arab Emirates have secretly carried out airstrikes against Islamist militias inside Libya. They say the United States wasn't notified in advance of the attacks. One official says the two countries and Saudi Arabia have been supporting a renegade general's effort against Libyan militant groups for months, but that the Saudis don't appear to have played a role in recent strikes.
