Tunisian staff kidnapped in Libya have freed

World Bulletin / News Desk 

Ten Tunisian diplomatic staff kidnapped by gunmen from the consulate in Libya's capital a week ago have been freed and are back in Tunisia, Tunisian Foreign Minister Taieb Bakouch told on Friday.

Three of the 10 had been freed earlier in the week, but Bakouch said all the staff were now back in Tunisia.

He gave no details about negotiations to free the staff and no group had claimed responsibilty. But their release came shortly after a Tunisian court ruled to extradite a Libyan being held in Tunisia to face terrorism charges.
