Libya ex-spy chief’s daughter abducted


Gunmen kidnapped the daughter of Libya’s former spy chief Abduallah el-Senoussi as she left a Tripoli prison after serving out a sentence, Justice Minister Salah al-Marghani said Tuesday.

El-Senoussi was the intelligence chief for Libya’s longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi, and his daughter, Unud, had completed a 10-month prison term when she was snatched Monday.

“Turban-wearing armed men in five vehicles attacked the convoy that was accompanying Unud el-Senoussi as she left prison and kidnapped her,” al-Marghani said.

He added that the convoy had been due to take el-Senoussi’s daughter, in her early 20s, to the airport to join her family when the attack took place outside Ain Zara prison in the Tripoli suburbs.
