Saudi Arabia detains two Libyan military commanders performing Umrah in Mecca

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.

Some sources said that the two Libyan officials were arrested by the Saudi Arabian government after an order by the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord led by Fayez Al-Serraj.

Some other sources also said that the arrest came on grounds of the two being named on the list of terrorists published by eastern Libyan government chaired by Abdullah Al-Thinni.

Saudi Arabia and other states in the Gulf as well as Egypt published a list of terrorists and named five Libyan figures on the list including Libya’s Mufti Al-Sadiq Al-Gharyani, Muslim Brotherhood cleric Ali Al-Salabi and others.
