Al-Senussi, Libya’s ‘Black Box’, being questioned about suspected nuclear site

Published:

The head of the Libyan rebels’ council in Tripoli told Al Arabiya TV that the country’s former intelligence director, Abdullah al-Senussi, had been arrested and that his arrest could help uncover information about the whereabouts of a suspected nuclear site in the southern portion of the country.

Abdullah Nakir, said that “all of the information about the nuclear site will be discovered after al-Senussi’s arrest, since the official responsible of overseeing the reactor has escaped to Nigeria.”

Nakir described al-Senussi, who was reportedly arrested in November, as the “Black Box” of Libya and said that no pictures had been released to prove his arrest.

He also indicated that an investigation is under way to expose the names of infiltrator spies loyal to Muammar Qaddafi.

“Soon all the names of the Qaddafi spies that have infiltrated the rebels and gained high positions will be revealed.” He said the infiltrators had attempted to help Seif al-Islam Qaddafi escape Libya.

About the spread of arms in Libya, Nakir expressed concern, saying that taking arms from the rebels could open them to risk from infiltrators.

“The country is still not stable despite its security for the time being,” he added.
