Gunmen Kidnap President of Libya's Olympic Committee


The president of Libya's Olympic committee was taken from his car by gunmen in Tripoli on Sunday. A colleague who was with the president, Nabil Elalem, said two cars carrying men in military-style clothing blocked them off and then told Elalem he had to go with them.

Libya’s Sports Minister condemned the kidnapping, calling the kidnappers criminals and adding, “This goes against the spirit of the revolution and brings us back to the days of Qaddafi.”
