Libya gunmen kidnap former spy chief's daughter
TRIPOLI (AFP) - Gunmen kidnapped the daughter of Libya's former spy chief Abdullah Senussi as she left a Tripoli jail after serving out a prison sentence, Justice Minister Salah al-Marghani said on Tuesday.
Mr Senussi was the intelligence chief for Libya's long-time dictator Moamer Kadhafi, and his daughter Unud had completed a 10-month jail term when she was snatched on Monday.
"Turban-wearing armed men in five vehicles attacked the convoy that was accompanying Unud al-Senussi as she left prison and kidnapped her," Mr Marghani said.
He added that the convoy had been due to take Mr Senussi'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.
