Tripoli, 20 March 2103:
The Attorney General’s office has denied the arrest of Ali Al-Kilani, the former director of Libyan TV and Radio. . . .[restrict] His was one of three names said by the Prime Minister at a press conference yesterday evening, Tuesday, as having been arrested earlier in the day in Cairo by the Egyptian police, along with Ahmed Qaddaf Al-Dam and former Libyan ambassador Ali Marya.
There was some confusion because Egyptian officials initially said that the three they had arrested were Qaddaf Al-Dam, Marya and Mohamed Ibrahim Ali.
Today, however, the Egyptian newspaper, Al-Ahram, reported that officials were saying that four Libyans had been arrested. The identity of the fourth has not been disclosed.
According to the authoritative daily, Egyptian judicial officials have said that they are willing to exchange the four in return for a group of Egyptian Christians being held in Libya.
The paper said the proposal had been discussed by Egypt’s Assistant Attorney General, Hassan Yasine, when he was in Tripoli earlier this week.
