On 12 April, several employees of Canadian security contractor GardaWorld were arrested at Mitiga Airport in Tripoli by the Special Deterrence Forces (Rada) as they were reportedly unable to produce valid licenses for the hand guns they were carrying. As of 2 May, three foreign employees and five Libyan employees are understood to still be in detention but are now being held by the Internal Security Agency (ISA) which has launched an investigation into Garda World.
