The official added that the exam paper was leaked by teachers from Tobruk city, explaining that the suspects were arrested and referred to investigation, according to Tobruk government’s news agency.

The Ministry of Education in the eastern-based interim government decided on Tuesday to cancel the English exams, following the leak of the question paper on the Internet.

It’s worth noting that the education sector in east Libya is an illegal entity and it has no links to the legitimate Education Ministry in Tripoli.
