The Italian government has confirmed that two nationals and one Canadian national were freed on Friday from Ghat in southern Libya.

The three foreigners, who were kidnapped by armed men on September 19, were sent back to Italy on a private jet, according to the Italian government.

“The three abductees were freed in a very active collaboration with the local Libyan authorities.” The Italian government added.

Meanwhile, a high-ranking official from Ghat confirmed Saturday that the two Italians and one Canadian were set free after they had been victims of banditry and kidnapping on September 17.

The three foreigners work as engineers for an Italian company that is executing projects in Ghat.
