After roughly three weeks in captivity, Jordan's ambassador to Libya has been freed. The Libyan government secured his release by agreeing to extradite a jailed Libyan jihadist, the key demand of his kidnappers. Libya's foreign ministry confirmed early Tuesday that Fawaz al-Itan, the Jordanian ambassador to the North African country, had been released by his captors, according to Libyan state television.
