More Coptic Egyptians kidnapped in Libya

Thirteen more Coptic Egyptian workers were kidnapped in the city of Sirte. The total number kidnapped is now 20 people. The Libyan Foreign Ministry has stated that the government has no control over areas claimed by extremist groups, especially in Sirte. Given the extent of political instability, continued armed conflict and lack of personal security, all travel to Libya should be avoided.
