WASHINGTON —

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.

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.
