Jihadist group in Libya releases video of hostage

TRIPOLI--A Jihadist group in Libya released a video on Monday showing a kidnapped hostage from the Tunisian embassy pleading with the authorities in Tunis to negotiate with his captors.

The hostage, Mohamed ben Sheikh, is shown crying during the five-minute video as he calls on Tunisia's president to help rescue him from his plight.

He is being held by a largely unknown group calling themselves Shabab Al-Tawhid.

“Mr. President, why do you want to deprive me of life? ... There are no negotiations, they will not release me,” he says.

“Mr. President, negotiate with them. I want to return to Tunisia. They can kill me at any time.”

Mohamed ben Sheikh is one of two officials recently kidnapped from the Tunisian embassy by assailants.
