Six Turkish citizens detained in Libya now released -ministry

ANKARA, July 1 (Reuters) - Six Turkish citizens detained in Libya by forces loyal to commander Khalifa Haftar have been released, the Turkish foreign ministry spokesman said on Monday.

Turkey supports the internationally recognised government in Tripoli. The foreign ministry said on Sunday that the eastern Libyan militia would become a “legitimate target” if the detainees were not released immediately.
