GNA demands investigation into arrest of two Libyans in Saudi Arabia

Libya’s UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli urged Saudi Arabia on Tuesday to investigate and explain the arrest of two Libyan nationals at Jeddah airport.

In a press statement, the Libyan foreign ministry said that it was continuing to follow up the arrest of two Libyan nationals at Jeddah airport in Saudi Arabia on their way back home after performing Umrah rituals on Saturday.

The statement added that the Libyan interior ministry is in direct contact with the Saudi authorities to find out the background of this arrest.

Saudi Arabian authorities detained Sunday two Libyan military officials from western Libya – Al-Zawiya city.

The two officials are police captain, Mahmoud Ben Rajab, and the central security brigade of Al-Zawiya Mohammed Hussein.
