Libya: Abduction epidemic continues as media worker still held after 60 days
As UN-led talks over the formation of a Government of National Accord continue, media worker Abdelsalam al-Shahoumi, taken at gunpoint from his workplace in Tripoli, becomes yet another victim of an abduction epidemic that has continued unabated. Amnesty International calls on the Libyan authorities and all those effectively in control on the ground, to secure Abdelsalam al-Shahoumi’s immediate and unconditional release, and ensure that he is protected from torture and other ill-treatment.
