Libya hands over Egyptian officer-turned-terrorist Hisham El Ashmawy

The Libyan National Army officially handed over Egyptian special forces officer-turned-terrorist Hisham El Ashmawy to Egypt yesterday, according to the State Information Service. El Ashmawy was captured in Libya last year and is believed to be responsible for orchestrating several high-profile attacks in Egypt. The terrorist’s extradition to Egypt came as Egyptian intelligence chief Abbas Kamel visited Libyan military leader Khalifa Haftar, according to Ahram Gate.
