Nine foreign workers are unaccounted for after Islamic State fighters attacked an oilfield in Libya, reports say.

Several security personnel were killed in Friday afternoon's attack at the site in Al Ghani, south of Sirte, an Austrian Foreign Ministry official says.

Security teams retook the site but nine foreign workers are unaccounted for including one Austrian, one Czech and the seven others, who are non-EU citizens.

No demands have been made by any group or individual for their return.
