Tripoli - Kidnappers seized Egypt's cultural attache and three other embassy staff in Tripoli on Saturday a day after another of its diplomats was abducted, the Libyan foreign ministry said.

“The cultural attache and three other staff were kidnapped in Tripoli,” ministry spokesman Said Lassoued told AFP.

The abduction comes a day after the abduction of an embassy administrative adviser from his home in the capital and despite Libya's announcement of “reinforced security measures” around the Egyptian embassy. - Sapa-AFP
