North Korean couple taken by Libyan Islamic State stronghold

A spokesman of a local Libyan city council says a North Korean couple has been abducted near the stronghold of the country’s Islamic State affiliate. Taher al-Zaroug, spokesman for the western city of Misrata’s city council, says the couple – both doctors – were travelling from the oasis of Zallah in central Libya, where they worked for a local hospital for many years. He says they were seized Friday near the coastline city of Sirte, where the Islamic State group has gained a foothold amid Libya’s chaos in the past months.
