Libyan Prime Minster Ali Zeidan has been released after being seized by armed men at a hotel in Tripoli, according to security sources, reports Euronews. Witnesses say he was taken from the Corinthia Hotel at daybreak by group of around 100 men and driven off in a convoy of cars. It is thought he was abducted by a group of former rebels and held at the Interior Ministry’s anti-crime complex. The former militia have been working for the Interior Ministry to provide security in the capital and blame Zeidan for government collusion in the US special forces raid to arrest a suspected al Qaeda operative in Tripoli over the weekend.
