Egypt’s General Intelligence frees abducted Egyptians in Libya
Egypt’s General Intelligence Services (GIS) announced, on Thursday, it has freed a number of Egyptians who were recently abducted in Libya.

Since the fall of Muammar Qaddafi in 2011, Libya has undergone years of conflict. The North African nation has been split between opposing governments since 2014; the Government of National Accord in the west, and the House of Representative in the east, supported by Libyan Arab Armed Forces.
