A spokesman for Libya's Foreign Ministry says that unidentified gunmen have seized five Egyptian diplomats and embassy employees overnight in Tripoli.
Egypt had earlier reported that its administrative attache had been kidnapped. Mohammed al-Asswad says the abductions, which also included the cultural attache, took place Friday and early Saturday in two separate incidents. The abduction came hours after Libya's state news agency reported the arrest of a militia commander, Shaaban Hadiya, in Egypt. (AP)
