Libya youth in fear of abduction by armed groups

The growing number of armed groups in Libya is causing many of its younger people to leave out of fear of kidnap.

There has been a series of abductions in the country which has been plagued by instability since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Most of the victims of abductions since the revolution have been Libyan officials, including senior members of the government and their families.

However a university professor and a student were recently targeted.
