Kidnapped Libyan leader freed

Libya’s former Prime Minister Ali Zeidan has been released by his abductors in the capital, Tripoli.

The city’s most powerful militia, the Tripoli Revolutionary Brigade, kidnapped him from a hotel in the capital ten days ago, according to witnesses.

This armed group is nominally under the internationally recognised government in Tripoli.

It’s still not clear why the militia kidnapped the former prime minister, but his family has confirmed to the BBC that he was released on Tuesday night, and that he’s in good health.

They also say that he will remain in Tripoli until Friday, and plans to hold a news conference in an effort to “clear his name” over corruption allegations made against him in the past.

Mr Zidan led the Libyan government from 2012 to 2014, when he was ousted by parliament.

At that time, the prosecutor-general’s office imposed a travel ban on him for alleged financial irregularities, which he denied.
