Kidnapped TV Crew Found Dead

Five TV journalists - four Libyans and one Egyptian - have been found dead, eight months after they were kidnapped.

They had been working for Barqa TV, an eastern television supporting federalism for eastern Libya.

The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) said they had been kidnapped at a checkpoint operated by the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL) and had died 'recently'.

Their bodies were found near Al Bayda, close to the site of the kidnapping.
