Police Free 19-Year-Old Girl Abducted in Tripoli

Hanadi Nuaimi, who disappeared mysteriously in the northern city of Tripoli two days ago, was freed overnight Wednesday.

Tripoli police arrested the gang that kidnapped the 19-year-old girl under the commands of the head of the gendarmerie, Brig. Gen. Bassam Ayoubi, the National News Agency reported.

On Wednesday night, several roads were blocked with burning tires in the area of al-Tal in Tripoli over the abduction.

Media reports said that the abductors had contacted Nuaimi family demanding them to pay a $20,000 ransom in exchange for her release.
