Tripoli, 13 March 2015:
An armed group last night raided the home of the Omer Al-Hassi’s information minister, Ali Al-Huni . . .[restrict]and arrested him along with all his dinner party guests.
The armed group who detained Huni is said to be from a Mitiga-based militia.
The is understood that the guests were later released but that Huni has continue to be held.
In December last year Huni survived an assassination attempt in which one of his bodyguards was killed. He himself was shot in the leg. .
Huni’s appointment to the Hassi antigovernment last August was controversial in some quarters. Though low-profile since the revolution, Huni, who is a poet working in the Libyan dialect, is supposed in 2011 to have written poems praising Qaddafi and criticising the revolutionaries. [/restrict]
