Korea nullifies passports of 3 nationals in Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

SOUTH KOREA – South Korea has invalidated the passports of three nationals refusing to leave Libya, a government official said Monday.

A total of 13 South Koreans are staying in the nation ridden with unstable security conditions.

The government has strongly requested that they depart the country for security reasons.

A South Korean man remains held hostage by an unidentified armed group there after he was kidnapped in July.

“(We) have taken the step of nullifying the passports of three (of the South Koreans), as they have refused to get out of Libya,” the foreign ministry official told reporters on the condition of anonymity.

The government is trying to persuade the others to follow its advisory, he added.
