Libyan forces ride a military vehicle as they prepare for next advance against Islamic State holdouts in SirteBy Aidan Lewis SIRTE, Libya (Reuters) - Libyan forces said they captured a residential neighborhood in central Sirte from Islamic State on Monday, leaving just one district of the city still occupied by the militants. Spokesman Rida Issa said Sirte's neighborhood Number One was "completely liberated", but added that the brigades, backed by U.S. air strikes, were "in the process of clearing any remnants of Daesh (Islamic State)" from the area. For more than three months, brigades aligned with Libya's U.N.-backed government have been battling to oust Islamic State from Sirte, a coastal city that the militant group turned into a regional stronghold last year.

A man rides an electronic bike past a billboard for the upcoming G20 summit in HangzhouBy Jonathan Spicer NEW YORK (Reuters) - Six U.S. senators have urged President Barack Obama to prioritize cyber crime at a this weekend's G20 summit in China in the wake of the $81-million heist from Bangladesh's central bank, according to a letter obtained by Reuters. The letter from Sherrod Brown, a senior Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee, and five other senators want the U.S. President to press leaders from the world's biggest economies to commit to a "coordinated strategy to combat cyber-crime at critical financial institutions," in G20 communiques at the Sept. 4-5 summit in Hangzhou, China. The letter, dated Monday, cites the February incident in which hackers breached Bangladesh Bank's systems and used the SWIFT banking network to request nearly $1 billion from an account held at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
