CAIRO, October 10 (Itar-Tass) - Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan was seized by former rebels for his government's role in the capture of Abu Anas al-Liby, one of the supposed leaders of Al-Qaida in Tripoli on Saturday, reported representatives of one of rebel factions known as the Operations Room of Libya's Revolutionaries.
The Reuter news agency quotes a spokesman for the faction as saying "His (Zeidan's) arrest comes after (US Secretary of State John) Kerry said the Libyan government was aware of the operation."
On Thursday, unidentified armed men forced their way into Tripoli's Corinthia Hotel which houses the residence of the Head of Cabinet, and, threatening him with weapons, took him away to an unknown destination. According to the Al-Jazeera television channel, the premier was arrested during a joint operation of the Interior Ministry and the Operations Room of Libya's Revolutionaries on an instruction from the Attorney General. Corruption charges, along with accusations of implication in the al -Liby's capture, were ostensibly brought against Zeidan.
Earlier the LANA news agency, referring to officials of the Interior Ministry's the crime busting directorate, reported that the premier had been detained. "Noone kidnapped him," LANA quoted them as saying.
Meanwhile the Libyan Attorney General stated that he personally "did not issue a warrant for an arrest" of the politician.
Cabinet sources maintain that the premier was kidnapped by "unidentified armed people".
