TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) -

The head of a Libyan prison says the daughter of the country's former spy chief has been abducted after leaving prison in the Libyan capital.

Mourad Zekri says that Anoud, daughter of former dictator Moammer Gadhafi's intelligence chief and top aide Abduallah el-Senoussi, was kidnapped just after she left al-Rayoumi prison in Tripoli on Monday. He says security forces are investigating.

Anoud had been held for nearly 10 months after entering Libya with a forged passport. She had come to visit her father in prison, where he has been held over his role in crimes committed during the 2011 civil war that toppled Gadhafi and left thousands dead.

Successive Libyan governments have largely failed to reign in powerful militias and bring law and order to the country since the war.
