Two months after they were abducted by unknown men in Libya, two Italian workers and a Canadian have regained freedom after they were released by those who held them captive.
According to reports, Danilo Calonego, Bruno Cacace and Frank Poccia were abducted on Sept. 19 in Ghat, southwestern Libya, near the site where they worked.
The two Italians were technicians employed by construction group Conicos and not much was revealed about the Canadian.
“The three were released in the early hours of Saturday and were handed over to Italian authorities,” said Hassan Ottman, a spokesman for the municipal council in the Libyan town of Ghat.
