Convoy reported attacked in Bani Walid
Tripoli, 20 June:
A convoy of vehicles belonging to the Wadi Al-Ajaal National Security Directorate was reportedly attacked in the Bani Walid area on Monday afternoon according to a security source. It was on its way from Tripoli to the Awbari area in southern Libya.
The source said that a group called the Sawf Al-Gene Martyrs Brigade had ambushed the 10 vehicles and that it was using the former Internal Security headquarters in Bani Walid as its base.
There has, however, been no independent verification of the attack so far.
The source added that both the convoy’s personnel and their vehicles were being held by the brigade which was under the command of Salim Al’waer and that the detainees’ fate was unknown.
He said that there had been appeals to the Interior Ministry to intervene immediately and also put an end to such attacks.
