‘ISIS leader who recruited in Italy arrested in Libya’

ROME – Tunisian Abu Nassim, considered a jihadist recruiter in Italy, has been arrested by Libyan Zintan forces allied with General Khalifa Haftar, according to the Libya Herald.

Nassim, whose full name is Moez Ben Abdulgader Ben Ahmed Al Fezzani, had been previously arrested by the Americans, tried in Milan, acquitted, expelled, and returned to Libya.

He is allegedly also tied to the group that kidnapped four employees of Parma-based general contractor Bonatti in July 2015 near the Libyan oil and gas port of Mellitah.

According to the Libya Herald, Nassim was fleeing Sirte and trying to reach Tunisia.
