Topic: Egyptian diplomat kidnapped in Libyan capital

Unidentified gunmen kidnapped an Egyptian diplomat in the Libyan capital Tripoli on Friday, officials said, hours after a powerful Libyan militia reported the arrest of its leader in Egypt. The diplomat works as administrative attaché at the Egyptian mission, the Libyan and Egyptian foreign ministries said. "Talks are being held to free him," said a spokesman for the Egyptian foreign ministry. The kidnapping comes shortly after the Operations Room of Libya's Revolutionaries, a powerful militia, said its leader Shaban Hadia had been arrested in Egypt.
