Libyan armed group holds Lebanese hostages, calls for release of Hannibal Gaddafi
A group of armed men called “Special Tasks Unit” of Al-Mutasim Bellah Gaddafi, son of dictator Muamar Gaddafi, has broadcast a footage of two
Lebanese brothers arrested earlier without identifying the place of custody saying that they demand the release of Hannibal Gaddafi, who is arrested by Lebanese authorities, in exchange of the brothers release.
“We are taking these two Lebanese brothers as hostages to respond to the immoral operation of apprehending Hannibal Gaddafi by the Lebanese State authorities.” Said one of the kidnappers in the leaked footage.
“The two brothers are Khalid and Mohammad Nazha and they will not get their freedom back until Hannibal does.” The kidnapper added.
The Lebanese authorities arrested Hannibal Gaddafi more than a month ago to question him about the disappearance of the Shiite cleric, Imam Mousa Al-Sadr in Libya in the early 1980s.
