The Civil Registry Authority has announced shutting off all of its bureaus in Libya over the abduction of two engineers from its staff in Sooq Al-Jomoa, Tripoli.

On Facebook Thursday, the authority said two engineers were kidnapped while at work in Sooq Al-Jomoa province in Tripoli, naming them as Abdelsalam Al-Khawaildi and Sami Al-Basikri.

The authority added that it has been suffering from a growing number of kidnappings and forced disappearance acts against its staff, calling on all of the relevant authorities to secure and protect the employees at their workplaces.

It also warned all the parties that are doing such criminal acts of messing around with it and with its personnel as they represent the national security of the country and the countrymen.
