Eastern Libyan authorities arrest two Turks over Turkey's support for 'militias'

BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Eastern Libyan authorities have arrested two Turks in the oil town of Ajdabiya over Turkey’s support for “militias” in Libya, a statement said on Sunday.

The security department of Ajdabiya, located near the oil port of Brega, published pictures of two Turks on its website who it said it had detained, and called on citizens to report any Turk or Turkish firm operating in the town.
