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.
