Libyan police start manhunt for kidnapped police chief
Libyan police have begun their manhunt to find their missing head of criminal investigations, who was kidnapped on Thursday in Benghazi, AP reported on Sunday.
Head of the Criminal Investigation Department, Abdel Salam al-Mahdawi, was abducted from outside the Tibesti hotel in Benghazi after reportedly investigating the recent assassination of the city's police chief.
Kidnappings have become a frequent occurence in the country's second city, since the ousting of former dictator, Muammar Gaddafi. Armed groups who fought for the revolution have since refused to set down their weapons and return to society.
