22 March 2014 7:13 pm
A staff member of the Tunisian embassy in Libya was kidnapped Friday, according to a statement from the Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Foreign Minister Mongi Hamdi said that the staff member’s car was found empty, Reuters reported.
The incident occurred in the Ain Zara suburb of eastern Tripoli, the Libyan capital, according to AFP. The same source reported the victim was the secretary of the Tunisian ambassador.
The ministry says it is working with Libyan authorities to obtain more information.
Instability and violence in the country since the 2011 overthrow of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi have concerned Tunisian authorities. Smuggling is also an issue, with illicit goods being trafficked across the Tunisia-Libya border.
