Second Italian freed in Libya


ROME: An Italian engineer kidnapped in Libya in March has been freed and flew home overnight, the foreign ministry announced on Sunday. No details were released of how Gianluca Salviato, 48, came to be liberated days after another Italian, Marco Vallisa, 54, was freed after four months in the hands of abductors. Libyan security sources told Agence France-Presse that Vallisa had been freed following the payment of a ransom of around one million euros ($1.25 million) to the armed militia that had been holding him.
