Masked gunmen kidnapped Jordan's ambassador as he travelled to work in the Libyan capital on Tuesday, shooting at his car and wounding his driver, the two countries' governments said.It is the latest targeting of Libyan leaders and foreign diplomats in the increasingly lawless North African country, three years after NATO-backed rebels ousted autocratic leader Moamer Kadhafi.The abduction comes two days after Libyan Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thani stepped down, saying he and his family had been the victims of a "traitorous" armed attack.Libya has seen near daily attacks in recent months, particularly in the restive east, a challenge from rebels who blockaded vital oil terminals for nine months and a growing crisis stemming from the interim parliament's decision to extend its mandate.That attack followed a car bomb attack on the French embassy in April which wounded two guards.
