ISIS beheadings: Islamic State militants in Libya behead eight guards and kidnap nine foreigners

4 years ago1.1K views

Islamic State militants captured nine oil workers from the al-Ghani oil field in Libya last Friday, according to Libyan military spokesman Ahmed al-Mesmari.

The militants also beheaded eight oil field guards, according al-Mesmari. The Tehran-based Press TV reported the militants shot the guards and then set parts of the oil field on fire.

IS militants took nine foreign workers hostage, including four workers from the Philippines, one from Austria, one from the Czech Republic and one from Bangladesh. The ninth hostage's nationality has yet to be identified.

The al-Ghani oil field is located near the town of Zalla, about 470 miles southeast of Tripoli, Libya's capital.

The Associated Press reported that al-Mesmari warned IS militants plan to take over Libya's petroleum industry.

"This is the lifeline of the Libyan people," al-Mesmari said Monday.

One oil worker reportedly died of a heart attack after watching the beheadings.
