Tripoli, 27 October 2016:
Further evidence of the chaotic situation in Tripoli resulting from the collapse of law and order has emerged with kidnappers threatening to kill a doctor they had released after a ransom was paid if he did not pay more money.
According to the Facebook page of a group of Libyan doctors, Professor Mukhtar Senussi, who was said to be one of the leading specialists in chest diseases in Libya, has fled the country after kidnappers who had released him following payment of a LD 400,000 ransom, demanded he pay them more money. Otherwise, they said, they would kill him.
According to the report, Dr Senussi has now left the country with his family as a result.
However in response a colleague, Omar Alhabasi, has posted that Dr Senussi has now fled the country. He had gone to Tunisia simply for a holiday after his ordeal but once recuperated will return to Libya. He had said that he would never quit Libya, Alhabasi said.
