Two people were killed and several others were kidnapped on Saturday in an armed attack by militants suspected of being Islamic State (IS) terrorists on a government water supply project site in southeastern Libya, a local official said.
"Militants today attacked a site of the project near the city of Tazirbu southeastern Libya," Tawfiq al-Shwehdi, head of the information office of the Libyan Water Supply Authority, told Xinhua.
"The militants killed an engineer and a security guard.
They also kidnapped two other employees and took them to an unknown location," al-Shwehdi said.
"The militants tampered with the site and stole all the vehicles and food supplies there," al-Shwehdi added, confirming that the militants are still unidentified.
However, another source said "everybody in the site believes that the militants are likely to belong to IS."
On Friday, unidentified gunmen kidnapped three Filipino engineers and a Korean technician from a location of the government project in western Libya.
In November 2017, an unidentified armed group kidnapped four foreign workers, three Turks and a German, working at the power station in Obari, 1,100 km south of capital Tripoli.
The workers were freed two weeks ago after tribal mediation with the kidnappers.
Following the 2011 uprising that toppled former leader Muammar Gaddafi's government, Libya has been suffering escalating violence and insecurity, as well as political division.
