Kidnapped Korean trade official freed in Libya
The Korean trade official who was abducted in Libya earlier this week has been rescued and is safe and unharmed.
Korea's foreign ministry confirmed Thursday that Han Seok-woo, the head of the Libya unit of the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency, is in good health and has been safely transferred to the Korean Embassy in Tripoli after being freed by Libyan security forces.
The release comes three days after Han was captured by a group of unidentified armed men on his way home from work.
After an interview with the embassy about his abduction, Han is expected to travel to the Mediterranean island of Malta to see his family and will return to Korea with them.
