TRIPOLI, Libya, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Kidnappers have released the 26-year-old son of Libyan Defense Minister Abdullah al-Thinni after four months of captivity, authorities said.

Muhammed al-Thinni appeared before reporters Monday evening following his release.

He did not know where he had been held, and said he had been moved to different hiding places, the Libya Herald reported.

Masked kidnappers dragged him from his car on Sept. 24 while he was visiting Janzour, he said.

It is unclear why the kidnappers decided to release al-Thinni, the Herald said.
