The Mayor of Zawiya, Abdul Karim Al-Abah, confirmed that the Libyan citizens from Al-Zawiya who were arrested in Saudi Arabia in mid-2017 are in the prisons of the Eastern Province.

Al-Abah clarified in a press statement Wednesday that they have received assurances on their release, within a couple of weeks.

This development came after a week-long visit by a delegation of municipality members and dignitaries of Zawiya to the cities of the eastern region, including Benghazi and Marj.
