Director of Gaza power plant missing in Ukraine

Feb. 22, 2011 2:36 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 24, 2011 11:17 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The director of Gaza's sole power plant was reported missing by relatives Tuesday, who said they had not heard from him since he left the Ukraine five days ago after visiting his brother.

Family members say they fear Dirar Abu Sisi was abducted, and began a sit-in outside of the International Red Cross office in Gaza City and appealed to the Ukrainian president to help find Dirar.

Upon his entry to the Ukraine in late January, family members said, Abu Sisi had been interrogated and his passport was confiscated. He told relatives that his passport was returned to him on Wednesday, two days before he went missing.

Abu Sisi is married to a Ukrainian national, who lives with him and the couple's six children in Gaza city.
