The family of Abu Anas al-Liby - a Libyan man wanted in connection to the U.S. embassy bombings in Africa 15 years ago- says he was whisked out of Tripoli by U.S. forces.
Al-Liby's son Abdullah al Ragye.
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) ABDULLAH AL RAGYE, ABU ANAS'S SON, SAYING:
"When he was returning from dawn prayer at 630 there were four cars waiting for him in the streets near the house, once he parked the car at the house two cars came, about ten persons got out of it maybe more, a masked group and [an]other not masked."
Al-Liby's brother Nabeh al Ragye denied he was involved in the attacks.
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) NABEH AL RAGYE, ABU ANAS'S BROTHER, SAYING:
"Of course it was an act of piracy by foreign forces to kidnap my brother, they should have submit[ed] a document to the Libyan government and put my brother here [on] trial, it's very normal like any Libyan citizen."
The FBI had offered a reward of $5 million for aiding in the capture of al-Liby.
