A statement issued on Monday by Italian authority said a C-130 transport plane was sent to the port city of Misrata to take the wounded to a military hospital in Rome.

Islamic State militants claimed responsibility on Friday for the bombing the day before. The attack killed at least 47 people and wounded more than 100, making it the worst such attack since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Italy and other Western powers have been pushing Libya’s factions to back a U.N.-brokered plan for a national unity government to join forces against Islamic State militants. But the agreement faces major resistance from several factions on the ground.
