Eight Tunisian citizens working in Libya's capital Tripoli have been kidnapped, according to Tunisian state radio, citing a local official, on Sunday.

Tunisian officials were not immediately available to confirm the abduction. But the news came after gunmen on Friday kidnapped 10 staffers from the Tunisian consulate in Tripoli. No group has claimed responsibility.

Armed groups have kidnapped foreign nationals and diplomats in the past year to try to pressure their governments to release jailed Libyans.
