The joint operations room of Misrata has arrested three people linked to Al-Qaeda - including an Algerian national - and seized their weapons.

The joint operations room said the Algerian national has been under surveillance for a period of time in Tripoli as he is the main wanted terrorist, adding that the operation of storming his house was done after obtaining a permission for it from the Public Prosecutor's Office.

"The arrested persons are linked to several terrorist attacks in Tripoli. We seized weapons, ammo, grenades and documents." The room explained.

It added that they entered Tripoli using the deterioration of security status in the capital due to the offensive led by Khalifa Haftar's forces.
