Turkish National Abducted İn Libya's Sabha

Unknown gunmen have abducted a Turkish national in southern Libya's city of Sabha, a security source said Monday.

Unknown gunmen have abducted a Turkish national in southern Libya's city of Sabha, a security source said Monday.

The source, requesting anonymity, told Anadolu Agency that a 55-year-old Turkish national had been abducted by as-yet-unknown assailants on Sunday after the latter opened fire on his vehicle from a car with no license plates, injuring his Libyan driver.

The source said the militants had taken the Turkish man to an unknown location after forcing him from his vehicle and into their own.

He went on to say that search operations were already underway to locate the missing Turkish man.

Last December, a Turkish national who worked at a restaurant in Sabha was abducted by militants.

The man was released a few weeks later after his family paid a ransom to his captors.

Libya has remained in a state of turmoil since a bloody uprising ended the decades-long rule of strongman Muammar Gaddafi in late 2011.

Since then, the country's stark political divisions have yielded two rival seats of government, each with its own institutions and military capacities.

Vying for legislative authority are the Tobruk-based House of Representatives and the Islamist-led General National Congress, which convenes in capital Tripoli.

The two assemblies support two rival governments respectively headquartered in the two cities.
