Tunis, 29 November 2014:
The Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has advised Tunisians “to defer” any travel to Libya at . . .[restrict]the moment because of the continuing deteriorating situation there. Tunisians should only go to Libya if their business is absolutely essential.
The ministry went on to warn all Tunisians currently in Libya, to exercise extreme caution and avoid trouble spots.
Concern continues over the fate of two Tunisian journalists arrested almost three months ago near Ajdabiya. Since then little has been established about their whereabouts, except that they are being held by “radicals”.
Sofiène Chourabi and Nadhir Gtari were abducted on 4 September. The Tunisian government, pressed by the Union of Tunisian Journalists, has been seeking action by the Libyan government to locate the pair and secure their release. [/restrict]
