Egypt: Armed Assailants Kidnap Egyptian Girl in Libya - Agency

Cairo — Armed assailants kidnapped an Egyptian 15-year-old girl in Libya's Benghazi on Saturday, Egypt's state news agency said.

Libyan authorities have begun investigations to find the perpetrators, security sources told the agency.

This is not the first time an Egyptian has been kidnapped in the neighboring country that has suffered from a security vacuum since the removal of President Muammar Gaddafi.
