Former Libyan oil minister freed after a month of abduction
A former Libyan oil minister Abdulbari Al-Arusi was released on Tuesday after two weeks in captivity.
Al-Arusi was kidnapped by unidentified gunmen outside his home in the capital Tripoli last month.
No group has claimed responsibility for the former minister’s abduction.
Al-Arusi, 58, is a member of the Islamist Justice and Construction Party (JCP).
He was a political prisoner and sentenced to death under the regime of Muammar Gaddafi.
After ousting Libya’s long-time leader, he served as minister of oil and gas from 2012 to 2014.
