TUNIS - A Tunisian court has freed former Libyan prime minister Al-Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi, despite an extradition request from Libyan authorities, his lawyer said on Thursday.

"The court ruled to free him from prison," Mabrouk Korchid told Reuters. Confirming the report, a judicial source said al-Mahmoudi was now a free man.

Al-Mahmoudi fled Libya to neighboring Tunisia soon after the rule of Muammar Gaddafi collapsed in July and had gone on hunger strike in protest against his possible extradition.
