4 ITALIAN ABDUCTED IN LIBYA

>–

CyrenaicaFour Italian construction workers have been kidnapped in Libya, the Italian foreign ministry has said on Monday 07/20/2015. They were abducted near a compound owned by Italian oil and gas group Eni in the western Mellitah area, the ministry said.

Italy closed its embassy in Libya in 02/2015, calling on Italians to leave because of the dangers to foreigners.

The workers are employed by Bonatti, a company that builds for the oil, gas and energy sector, La Repubblica reports.

The paper reports they were kidnapped on their way back from Tunisia on Sunday evening.

Two rival governments are vying for legitimacy and territory in Libya and so-called Islamic State (ISIS ) is among the armed groups operating in the country (see also – AQIN-Abduction 12.11.11 ).

Nine foreign oil workers were kidnapped by I.S.I.S in 03/2015.
