A local bank executive was targeted by a militia group in Benghazi and was seized in a violent gun attack on his way to work one morning.  Working with his family MS Risk prepared a negotiation strategy and made ready to receive ransom demands.  Once the communications began they were able to confirm the victim was alive and without serious injury.  The negotiation played out quickly and the victim was released and moved to safety quickly for medical assistance, counselling and debriefing.
