TRIPOLI, Libya, April 21 (UPI) -- Libyan militant group Chabab Tawhid (Youth of Unification) released a video on Saturday showing footage of missing Tunisian embassy employee Mohamed Bechikh, who was kidnapped on March 21 from Tripoli.
In the video, Bechikh said that his kidnappers were threatening to kill him. "They can kill me... I want to go back to Tunisia."
Bechikh relayed a message from Chabab Tawhid, asking the Tunisian government to "negotiate seriously" with the militant group and stated "this is a legitimate request."
Another Tunisia diplomat, Aroussi Gantassi, was kidnapped on April 17 from Tripoli. It is unclear whether he was also taken by Chabab Tawhid.
