The Anti-Illegal Immigration Agency in Tripoli received Friday, three Egyptians who were kidnapped in the suburbs of Bani Walid after their illegal entry to Libya.

The three Egyptians were attempting to cross to Europe from the Libyan shores, but instead, they found themselves victims to an armed group in Bani Walid area who took them to an unknown destination and demanded a ransom of 40 thousand Libyan dinars for their release.

The security services managed to free the migrants and handed them over to the Anti-Illegal Immigration Agency in Tripoli on the instructions of the Attorney General.
