A Tunisian diplomat was kidnapped Thursday in Tripoli in unknown circumstances, a Libyan security source told AFP, just two days after armed men seized Jordan's ambassador.
A Tunisian source confirmed the abduction and identified the diplomat as Al-Aroussi Kontassi, without giving further details.
Tunis's ambassador to Libya, Ridha Boukadi, refused to comment.
Libyan foreign ministry spokesman Said Lessoued said he could not confirm or deny the reported abduction, the latest in a string of incidents targeting foreign diplomats and Libyan politicians.
