Gunmen in Libya’s Ubari city kidnapped Friday four workers from the Turkish company Enka.

The unknown gunmen abducted at gunpoint three Turkish men and one German man all working on operating the Ubari gas steam station in southern Libya, said Omar Gogi, deputy municipal head.

He also added that it is not clear to which party or group the gunmen belong or why they kidnapped the foreigners.

The search for the abductors and abductees was underway, he added, until the foreign workers are released.
