TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Kidnappers have freed Libya's deputy intelligence chief a day after he was abducted from Tripoli's international airport, a senior parliamentary security committee official said on Monday.

Mustafa Noah, head of the agency's espionage unit, was bundled into a car on Sunday as he left the airport, security sources said. He had no bodyguards with him at the time.
