Today’s abiya news roundup brings you the latest abia breaking news and headlines from around the world.
Today’s latest abiya story is about an Egyptian army captain who says he was abducted by soldiers after he refused to join the military and was forced to work for a private company.
His captors allegedly threatened to kill him if he tried to escape.
The colonel has spoken out, and the story has been reported around the globe.
Here’s what we know about the case so far.
The captain, who has not been named, says he went missing on October 2.
He says his captors gave him a car, which they took away.
A video showing the driver’s license and a map of the area where the soldiers were supposed to be stopped the next day was found.
He’s also told that he was supposed to go to the military academy.
The story was reported on CNN, CNN International, ABC News, CNN-U.S., CBS News, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Associated Press, Al Jazeera, Reuters, The Wall Street Journal, and more.
He was reportedly interrogated by a soldier, who asked him if his wife or children were safe.
“Yes, my wife and children are in the safe house,” he said, according to the captain.
But his captor then allegedly threatened him if they told anyone about the incident.
“The only thing that is missing is the money.
I will have to pay them, or if they give you the money, then you will be shot and killed,” the captor reportedly said.
The soldiers allegedly said they would shoot the captain if he refused.
“We don’t want to shoot anyone,” he was allegedly told.
He reportedly went into the military police station and was released, though the police later interrogated him again.
He said the interrogators threatened to shoot him if any of his relatives came to the police station.
The military police officer, who spoke to CNN but is not named in the article, said he spoke with the captain and that the officer told him the army was doing everything to protect its officers.
“They are doing everything they can to save our soldiers and to protect us, and I told them, you have to understand, this is the only way we can get the money back, so if you want, you can ask me anything.
We can’t be afraid to ask for money,” the officer said.
He is not sure if the soldier who was with him also was taken.
The police officer also said he was not able to speak to the other officers in the police squad.
The commander in charge of the military in Egypt is in custody and reportedly denied any involvement in the case.
“I have no knowledge of the kidnapping, kidnapping of any soldier, no one kidnapped any soldiers.
We are investigating all these accusations,” he told Al Jazeera.
Al Jazeera has reached out to the Egyptian army for comment.
The captors are believed to be members of the Egyptian Army’s Special Forces, and soldiers in the Egyptian military are supposed to protect military and civilian personnel.
But the army has not yet publicly named them.
