WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. military officials say airstrikes from drones have destroyed two armed vehicles south of the Iraqi town of Sinjar, the latest American-led military actions against forces of the Islamic State group.

In a statement Friday, U.S. Central Command said Kurdish forces had reported that Islamic State militants were attacking civilians in the village of Kawju.

Officials say remotely piloted aircraft identified and then followed an armed vehicle to a roadside area near Sanjar and later struck and destroyed two vehicles in the area.
