Libyan national Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, also known as Abu Anas al-Libi, remains in incommunicado detention after being seized by US Special Forces in Libya on 5 October 2013 and removed from the country. He is reportedly being held on a US navy vessel, the USS San Antonio, which was in the Mediterranean at the time of the abduction. However, on 9 October, the Department of State again refused to confirm where he was being held.
