BBC reports that six soldiers and two officials from the Foreign Office were freed two days after they were detained and that they were put on a boat bound for Malta on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, The Netherlands is still trying to arrange the return of three of its soldiers who were reportedly in the country to evacuate Dutch nationals from Sirte, Muammar Qaddafi’s hometown, which is located about halfway between Tripoli and Benghazi. The men, along with their helicopter, were captured by Qaddafi’s forces and are still in detention.
