Libyan Prime Minister rescued after kidnapping
TRIPOLI, Libya (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Libyan government says its prime minister has been freed after being kidnapped by rebels.
Prime Minister Ali Zeidan was taken by armed militants from a hotel in Tripoli Thursday morning.
The group behind it says he was arrested because the Libyan government knew about a planned U.S. raid where a former al-Qaeda member was captured.
But Zedian actually condemned that raid over the weekend.
Word is officials negotiated for his release, but there's no word on what terms may have been reached.
