To area full of hideouts, driver bound and abandoned
CAIRO, JULY 22 – The Libyan online publication Akhbar Libya 24 reported Wednesday that the four Italians taken hostage in the city have been moved to a desert location. The outlet cited sources from Sabrata, on the country’s northwestern coast, as saying that the four had been taken to a desert area with many hideouts. The sources said that the hostage-takers made the Italians get out their car and into another one, leaving their mobile phones behind. The driver was reportedly tied up and left in the desert.
