Talks on for securing release of 2 Indian teachers in Libya

New Delhi: India is cautiously optimistic about securing release of two Indian teachers, abducted by Islamic State terror group (ISIS) in war-torn Libya eight days ago.

Official sources said the Indian Embassy in Tripoli was in talks with authorities concerned to ensure release of the two Indians. Two other abducted teachers were released by ISIS on August one.

"Talks are going on with authorities concerned and we are cautiously optimistic about their release," a source said.

The sources said severe clashes have erupted between ISIS and supporters of the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi in the Abu Hadi area which is 20 km from Sirte which have complicated the situation.

The teachers were abducted at a checkpoint approximately 50 km from Sirte on July 29 while returning to India via Tripoli and Tunis, an area under the control of ISIS.
