NATO Considers Libya Security Following Abduction

Stars and Stripes

“While the circumstances remain unclear, Prime Minister Ali Zeidan was taken captive by gunmen in Libya’s capital, Tripoli. He was released hours later, according to news reports. The abduction comes only a few days after a raid by U.S. special operations that plucked a high level al-Qaida operative from the streets of Tripoli.”

“NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh-Rasmussen condemned the apparent kidnapping during a news conference at his headquarters in Brussels, but said details remained murky.”
