Seven of the nine Tunisians kidnapped in Libya in the western city of Sorman, about 100 kilometers from the border with Tunisia, have been released, announced the Tunisian Observatory for Human Rights.
The Head of the Tunisian NGO Mustafa Abdelkabir made the announcement via his Facebook page. He added that two individuals are still detained by the Libyan security authorities.
“We will work to free them,” said Abdelkabir, thanking the Libyan side for their cooperation.
According to Abdelkabir, the Tunisians were arrested by an armed group representing the Libyan state as part of routine procedures against illegal migration.
