Libya's deputy intelligence chief Mustafa Nuh was abducted Sunday in Tripoli, a security official told AFP, as tensions ran high in the capital following deadly violence over the weekend.
"The vice president of intelligence was abducted shortly after his arrival in Tripoli from a trip abroad," said the official, who declined to be named.
Contacted by AFP, an intelligence source confirmed that Nuh had "disappeared" but did not elaborate.
Private channel Libya al-Ahrar reported he was abducted, but it did not cite any sources for its report.
