The Reuters news agency also added that “The kidnapping took place in Noufliyah, an Islamic State stronghold southeast of the city of Sirte, said a resident, asking not to be named.”

“The militant group has expanded in the North African country by exploiting chaos and a security vacuum like it did in Iraq and Syria.”

Islamic State militants have beheaded dozens and attacked foreign missions in Tripoli, while also fighting forces loyal to Libya’s two government.
