Libyan PM Seized

October 10, 2013 by  

Libyan PM Seized, Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan was taken by force from a hotel in Tripoli early Thursday but freed by his captors hours later, the country’s Ministry for Information spokesman said.

His detention came days after militant groups pledged to retaliate over a raid by U.S. special forces to seize al Qaeda suspect Abu Anas al-Libi.

About 100 trucks of armed men arrived at dawn at the Corinithian Hotel where Zedian was living, and he was taken without an exchange of fire, a senior government official said.

Zeidan was taken “by gunmen to an unknown place for unknown reasons,” a government statement said.

It was immediately clear where Zeidan had been taken, but a Libyan official told a state news agency during his capture that he was “in good health and being treated well,” according to Reuters.
