Libyan PM calls brief abduction a 'coup' by foes

Libya's Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said on Friday former rebels who abducted him briefly were part of an attempted "coup" by his opponents in the country's legislature, accusing them of seeking to undermine his government.


The former rebels, now on the government payroll, who snatched Zeidan said they were angry at reports the government had been informed in advance of a US raid to capture an al Qaeda suspect there. (Reuters)
