TRIPOLI - Islamic State militants killed three soldiers loyal to Libya's self-declared government controlling Tripoli, state news agency LANA said on Sunday.

Islamic State forces have profited from Libya's turmoil, four years after the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi, to gain a foothold in the North African country where two rival governments are battling for power and Libya's oil wealth.

The militants stormed a military police checkpoint in Bughrain, a town east of Misrata, and killed the soldiers with knives, Tripoli-based LANA reported.

Islamic State militants have in recent months claimed responsibility for several attacks, including the storming of a Tripoli hotel and the murder of dozens of Egyptian and Ethiopian Christians.
