Tripoli, 25 November 2013:
Reports that Tunisians were involved in Benghazi’s clashes between the Saiqa Brigade and Ansar Al-Sharia Libya . . .[restrict]have been denied by a Tunisian Salafist living in Benghazi.
It was reported on Libya Al Ahrar TV that Tunisian passports were found in Ansar Al-Sharia’s headquarters in the city when it was stormed this morning.
“They actually belong to Tunisian workers in a Libyan-Tunisian construction company in Benghazi,” claimed the man, said to be close to Ansar Sharia in both Libya and Tunisia and who wished not to be named.
He told the Libya Herald that the passports had been “seized by an unknown group”. He also denied that Ansar Al-Sharia in Tunisia had any links to today’s clashes today. [/restrict]
