#Libya's Interior Minister Kidnapped in Benghazi (Updated with CNN Info)

After resigning from his post and urging the entire Libyan army to join the protesters and fight the regime, the interior minister Abdel Fattah Younes has reportedly been kidnapped in Benghazi, according to a tweet by Abdul Hamid Ahmad, editor in chief of Gulf Times.

A bit more on CNN:

Libyan state media reported that "gangs" in Benghazi had kidnapped him. Witnesses have reported that Benghazi has essentially been taken over by the opposition. Witnesses also told CNN they saw Younis on Sunday and Monday in Benghazi, where he was siding with the protesters.

Gangs in Benghazi - meaning the government thugs and/or black African mercenaries?
