FILE - In this Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 file photo, Libyan civilians watch fires at an Ansar al-Shariah Brigades compound, after hundreds of Libyans, Libyan Military, and Police raided the Brigades base, in Benghazi, Libya.

Military victories over extremist groups along Libya’s Mediterranean coastline has forced hundreds of militants, including Islamic State fighters, to seek refuge in the vast deserts of the North African nation, already home to militias, criminal gangs and mercenaries. The area provides a sanctuary for militants to reorganize, recruit and plot a potential comeback as the Islamic State group loses ground.(AP Photo, File)
