VALLETTA - Former Libyan energy minister Omar Fathi bin Shatwan has escaped to Malta from the besieged Libyan town of Misrata, the Maltese Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

He arrived in Malta on a small trawler on Friday, but his presence was kept secret, the ministry said.

Shatwan also served as industry minister and was chairman of a Libya-Malta bilateral commission before leaving the Libyan government in 2007.
