3 Filipino nurses rescued after Libya abduction


SECURE BETTER SECURITY. Following the rescue of three Filipino nurses abducted in Libya, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) called for better security for overseas Filipino workers in Libya.
The Department of Foreign Affairs on July 12 confirmed the abduction of 3 Filipino nurses in Libya, whom authorities all rescued two hours after a Libyan male abducted them. A  Libyan male abducted one female and two male Filipino nurses last July 8 at about 9 pm in downtown Sebha. The abductor brought them to an isolated area at the outskirts of the city. The male nurse escaped at 10 pm, and asked for help from a Libyan family, who then called in the police. Manila says it will ask Libya’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs “to secure better security” for overseas Filipino workers there.
