An unknown armed group kidnapped Saturday Abbas al-Qadi, the head of the General Authority of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, in Tripoli.  

Al-Qadi was kidnapped at gunpoint from the Tripoli airport and taken to undisclosed location.

No group has claimed responsibility for the abduction.

Meanwhile, local media outlets reported Sunday that Al-Qadi was not kidnapped but arrested by the General Investigation Department over complaints by Hajis families.
