MANILA (Mabuhay) — The Department of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday belied reports that four Filipino nurses were abducted by armed men in Sirte, Libya.
At a press briefing, Foreign Affairs spokesman Charles Jose branded as “false” the supposed kidnapping incident involving the Filipino health workers.
“The four were not actually not kidnapped. They were taken from their accommodation to a safer place,” Jose told a press briefing.
“Our embassy was able to talk to one of they and they said they are safe so the report is false,” he added. (MNS)
