A staffer of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) was released in southern Libya on Tuesday, according to a Libyan security official.
A female IOM member of a Palestinian origin was abducted in the southern city of Sabha by gunmen earlier this week.
“She was set free early today,” Yahia Shwayel, a senior security official, told Anadolu Agency.
He said the abductee was released peacefully after the intervention of a tribal leader in the area.
He said the employee was in good health and was not subject to torture.
The identity of the abductors was not yet clear.
