Four U.S. Military Personnel Released in Libya: U.S. Official

WASHINGTON, Dec 27 (Reuters) – Four members of the U.S. military detained in Libya were released after being taken into custody by the government, U.S. officials said on Friday.

Circumstances under which the four were detained remained unclear. But more than two years after the collapse of Muammar Gaddafi’s government, the country remains in turmoil with widespread insecurity.
