Dozens of families and friends of the kidnapped and forcibly detained persons held a protest Friday in Algeria Square in Tripoli.

The protesters demanded the release of all abductees and those arrested without legal basis.

They also called for the implementation of article 26 of the Libyan Political Agreement on abductees and missing persons, which obliges the signatories to the agreement to compile information on missing persons and abductees and submit them to the government.

 In the same article, the agreement also commits the government to establish an independent body for missing persons within 60 days from the start of the government's exercise of authority.
