Libya's deputy intelligence chief Mustafa Nur was abducted Sunday in Tripoli, a security official told AFP, as tensions ran high in the capital following deadly violence over the weekend. "The vice president of intelligence was abducted shortly after his arrival in Tripoli from a trip abroad," said the official, who declined to be named. There was no immediate claim for the abduction, which came as Tripoli began a three-day strike to mourn dozens of people killed in clashes at an anti-militia protest -- the deadliest violence in the capital since the 2011 uprising.
