The Second-in-Command of the Battalion 30 for protecting the Sharara oil field, Abdullah Ibrahim, said that they had managed to besiege the kidnappers of four foreigners working at Ubari gas-fired power plant.

On a local channel, Ibrahim said that the crisis is on its way to winding down and that the detainees will be freed within the next few hours, clarifying that armed clashes took place between them and the kidnappers who were trapped in Wadi Waraour area north of Ghat town, about 50 km from the Libyan- Algerian border.

The four foreign workers were abducted in Ubari town in southern Libya by unknown gunmen on Friday.
