The family of the kidnapped member of the House of Representatives (HoR), Siham Sergewa, has denied news circulated by supporters of warlord Khalifa Haftar about her release, confirming that there is no information regarding her health condition or whereabouts.

Haftar-backed media outlets reported Saturday that Sergewa is alive and that an armed militia had handed her over to another militia.

Negotiations have been going on for the past few weeks in order to reach an agreement on her release, in exchange of anonymity of the kidnappers, according to Haftar's media.
