Libya: Brigade 444 arrests 16 smugglers and frees 85 abductees

Brigade 444 said its forces had neutralized criminals’ hideouts in Nessma area – about 200km from Tripoli – arresting 16 smugglers, whom it said were criminals wanted by the authorities but had never been apprehended.

The brigade added on Facebook that during the delicate “combat operation”, its forces had freed 85 African abductees, in addition to ending the smugglers’ kidnap, looting, and banditry in the area that were burdening the residents for a long time, seizing weapons and vehicles they were using.

“Our forces are still working on ending such crimes in order to exact justice and reach every criminal hideout in the country.” The brigade, which did similar operations earlier near Bani Walid, said.
