Egypt Seeking Truth About Reported Abduction of 15 Nationals in Libya

Assistant Foreign Minister for Consular Affairs Hesham el Naqeeb said the Foreign Ministry is working around the clock to seek the truth about reports of the abduction of 15 Egyptian workers in Libya.

The Egyptian Ambassador in Libya has been holding contacts in this regard, Naqeeb said.

Media reports had quoted a lawyer from Gharbiya as saying that he filed a claim with the Foreign Ministry to rescue 15 Egyptian workers after their abduction in Libya by an affiliate of the terror Daesh group, which, according to him, threatened to slit their throats.
