Authorities in Libya’s capital city of Tripoli say they have arrested a police officer from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on suspicion of serving as a spy.

On Thursday, Tripoli prosecutors released a national ID card and a passport for the suspect, which was identified as Yousuf Saqer Ahmed Mubarak Welayti, a corporal with the Dubai police.

Siddick al-Sour, the head of the prosecutor general’s office in Tripoli, said that the man was detained on November 5 and is being questioned.
