Pan Arab newspaper Al Arab Al Yawm published the article linked below on Quilliam President Noman Benotman, describing how Mr. Benotman warned the Libyan government about the danger of possible kidnapping of diplomatic staff in Tripoli, two weeks before the kidnap of the Jordanian Ambassador Fawaz al-Aytan, along with members of his security staff, on the 15th April 2014. The identity of the group responsible for the kidnap is not known, although it has been proposed that the motive of the kidnap is to secure the release of a Libyan national held in prison in Jordan.
