Salah al-Alam says assailants snatched his brother, Libyan Olympic Committee chief Ahmed Nabil al-Taher al-Alam on Sunday near the organization's offices in central Tripoli. He says there has been no contact with him since.
The president of Libya's Olympic Committee Nabil al-Alam was kidnapped by gunmen in the centre of Tripoli and taken to a secret location, a committee official told AFP on Monday.
"Nine gunmen posing as members of the Libyan army removed Mr. Alam from his car in the centre of the city at around 3:00 pm (1300 GMT) and took him to an unknown location," Alam's office chief Arafat Juwan said.
