The United States Embassy in Libya has confirmed that it is monitoring the kidnapping of the Head of the Libyan Red Crescent Society in Ajdabiya, who is also a civil rights activist, Mansour Atti Al-Maghrabi, who was forcefully taken from a main street in Ajdabiya.

The Embassy indicated that it is carefully monitoring the kidnapping of Al-Maghrabi and joins the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) in calling for his immediate and unconditional release.

Earlier, the UNSMIL called for the unconditional release of Al-Maghrabi, urging all relevant authorities to ensure a prompt and transparent investigation into his forced disappearance, stressing that any and all arrests and detentions must be carried out based on legal procedures, with all relevant paperwork in order to ensure the use of the rule of law.
