– LIBYAN ANARCHI – PM SEIZED BY ARMED GANG
Armed men have kidnapped, on Thursday 10/10/2013 down, Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan and two of his bodyguards from Corinthia Hotel in Tripoli, the Prime Minister’s website reported.
Abu Dhabi-based Sky News Arabia quoted Libyan security sources as saying that Zeidan was seized from a hotel where he was staying in the Libyan capital and taken to an unknown destination. Just recently, on 10/08/2013, Ali Zeidan, following the seizure of Sheikh al-Liby, has called on Western powers to help stop the spread of militancy in his country.
Ali Zeidan was released after few hours by his capturers. Earlier NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen called for his release, adding that “stability and the rule of law are very important” as Libya seeks to rebuild. Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of the ousted dictator Muammar Gaddafi, is still held in Zintan by a local Militia despite international efforts to hand him over to tan International Court.
