Libya said it had demanded an explanation from Washington Sunday for the \"kidnap\" of a citizen in an unauthorised commando raid on its territory that netted a top Al-Qaeda suspect. \"The Libyan government has been following the reports of the kidnap of one of the Libyan citizens wanted by the authorities in the United States,\" a government statement said. \"As soon as it heard the reports, the Libyan government contacted the US authorities to demand an explanation.\" US special forces seized Abu Anas al-Libi in a commando raid in broad daylight on Saturday, sealing a 15-year manhunt for the top Al-Qaeda suspect. A source close to Libi told AFP he was snatched by armed men in Tripoli. Libi, who was on the FBI\'s most wanted list with a $5 million reward, was indicted in US federal court in New York for allegedly playing a key role in deadly 1998 bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. \"As the result of a US counterterrorism operation, Abu Anas al-Libi is currently lawfully detained by the US military in a secure location outside of Libya,\" Pentagon spokesman George Little said in a statement.
