Côte D'Ivoire: Lebanese National Kidnapped in Abidjan
On 13 May at approximately 2100 LT, four unidentified armed men abducted a Lebanese national in the Abobo neighbourhood in Abidjan. The assailants were reportedly waiting for the victim by his parked car outside his bakery, before forcing him into his car using guns and firing gunshots in the air. The police later found the car in the town of Agboville, located some 80 km north of Abidjan, but the victim is still missing. Authorities from both Lebanon and Côte d'Ivoire have launched an investigation into the kidnapping. Monitor developments to the security situation and remain vigilant for criminal activity.
