Seham Sergeva, a women's rights activist and a rare independent voice in Libya, was taken home Wednesday, CNN family members said, a militia loyal to Libyan National Army leader Khalifa Haftar. Elected as a member of the House of Representatives, she was critical of the LNA attack on the capital Tripoli.
According to family members who have asked not to be named for fear of retribution, more than a dozen masked and armed men arrived at Sergeva's home about 2 am on Wednesday. One family member has identified men as part of a militia called the 106th Brigade, also known as Awlia Aldem.
When they were looking for Sergeva, the family member said they had shot her husband in her legs and killed one of her sons. According to family members, both men are still in hospital.
When they left the house, they sprayed graffiti on the walls ̵

The Sergeva's family told CNN they had no idea where she was detained and that no one had the right to visit her husband and son in a hospital. The police confiscated their cell phones, family members said. [CNN] CNN has failed to contact any of the militia's officers or the Libyan National Army of Haftar to comment on the kidnapping.
