Gunmen kidnapped the son of the Libyan army's special forces commander on Thursday, the latest high-profile abduction in the eastern city of Benghazi. 

"He was leaving college when two cars blocked his way and dragged him away," Special Forces commander Col. Wanies Bukhmada told Reuters, describing his son's abduction.

More than two years after the revolt that ended the 42-year rule of Muammar Gaddafi, Libya's fragile government and nascent army are struggling to control brigades of former rebels and armed groups who fought in the uprising but have refused to disarm.

No group claimed responsibility for Thursday's kidnap.
