The Bangladesh Embassy in Tripoli has confirmed that apart from Mr. Helal Uddin, another Bangladeshi has been identified who was among nine others abducted from Al Ghani Oil Field south of the city Sirte on Friday, 06 March 2015 in the same incident when gunmen invaded the oil field killing eleven guards, beheading a number of them, before local forces fought back to retake control.
The Bangladesh Embassy in Tripoli confirmed about particulars of the Bangladeshi national named Mr. Mohammad Anowar Hossain, Passport No.: AE 3630754, District: Noakhali, Bangladesh.
It has been informed that initially Mr. Anowar was mistakenly identified as Sudanese national having similar name. However, Mr. Anowar’s identification was confirmed by a Bangladeshi working in a neighboring oil field. Libyan Foreign Ministry informed our Mission that they were trying heart and soul to rescue them.
After this attack on last Friday, 21 Bangladeshis were taken to safe places who were employed in another neighboring oil field. Bangladesh Embassy in Tripoli is maintaining constant vigil on the matter.
