Nothing can confirm or deny death of Chourabi and Ktari, says Libyan charge d'affaires in Tunis.

TUNIS, (TAP) - Nothing can so far confirm or deny the death of Tunisian journalists Sofiene Chourabi and Nadhir Ktari abducted in Libya since September 2014, said the Libyan charge d'affaires in Tunis.

"The Libyan charge d'affaires in Tunis said he has established contacts with the Libyan sides concerned by the case of the two journalists kidnapped in Libya and found that there has been neither confirmation nor denial of their death," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement released Wednesday.

As soon as the news of the death of Chourabi and Ktari was propagated by some media, the Foreign Affairs Department entered in touch with Tunisia's General Consulate in Tripoli and the Libyan mission in Tunis to check the reliability of the information.

In a video circulating for some hours on several websites and social networks, an official introducing himself as the spokesman for the Libyan ministry of Justice of the Tobruk government announced the killing of the two Tunisian journalists by terrorists who confessed to their crime after their arrest.
