A suspected Daesh (ISIS) militant driving a car laden with explosives surrendered to Libyan security forces at a checkpoint Thursday rather than go ahead with an attack in the city of Misrata, a security official said.The Misratan counterterrorism official, who asked not to be identified for security reasons, said he had surrendered at a checkpoint near Abu Grain town, but it was not immediately clear why he had handed himself in.Abu Grain is about 100 kilometers south of Misrata and 140 kilometers west of Sirte, a city that Daesh controlled until they were driven out by a Misratan-led military campaign in 2016 .
