Armed men are said to have kidnapped Libyan
Prime Minister Ali Zeidan from a hotel in Tripoli.
Sources say he was seized from the building and taken to an unknown destination.

The prime minister has recently come under pressure from militants in his country after the US security operation which snatched an suspected al Qaeda leader from his home in the Libyan capital.
