One of Muammar Gaddafi’s sons was kidnapped in Beirut. It seems that Hannibal is being held hostage by armed gunmen.
According to reports he was seized by armed gunmen, thought to be members of the Lebanese Amal Movement, while there visiting his wife.
Hannibal, 40, is the fifth son of Colonel Gaddafi and his second wife, Safia Farkash
Gaddafi, who has been living in exile in Oman since the ousting of his father from power in 2011, has reportedly been visiting his wife when he was snatched by gunmen.
He appeared in a video aired late Friday on local Al-Jadeed TV saying anyone who has information about Imam Moussa al-Sadr should come forward.
Gadhafi appeared to have been beaten up and had black eyes but said in the video he is “in good health, happy and relaxed.”
It was not clear when Gadhafi, who is married to a Lebanese woman, was kidnapped.
