TRIPOLI - The Libyan Olympic Committee is hopeful for "good news in the next few hours" on the release of its president after he was taken from his car by gunmen in Tripoli on Sunday, its deputy chief said.

Nabil Elalem was with a colleague when two cars carrying men in military-style clothing blocked the road, colleagues said. The armed men are said to have told him he was needed and that he had to go with them, before speeding away.

"God willing this issue will be solved in the next few hours," Noureddin El-Krekshi, deputy chief of the committee, told Reuters on Monday.
