The family of the former mayor of Benghazi Ahmed Al-Araibi organized Friday a sit-in in front of Tebesti Hotel in the city, calling on Khalifa Haftar to interfere and reveal the fate of the man and his son, urging him to release them.

Al-Araibi’s mother told reporters that she still doesn’t know the whereabouts of her son and grandson after two weeks from their kidnap, adding that she received no calls or demands.

Al-Araibi and his son were on October 02 by military-wearing gunmen.
