British man David Bolam released after being held in Libya: Officials

LONDON (AFP) - Briton David Bolam has been released after being held hostage in Libya, the Foreign Office in London said Saturday.

It said that Bolam was "safe and well" and had been reunited with his family without giving further details.

Bolam is a teacher at the Benghazi European School who had been held hostage by militants, the BBC reported.

The Site intelligence group identified a video posted on YouTube last month of Bolam appealing for British Prime Minister David Cameron to help secure his release.

The video, apparently recorded in August, was released by a group that called itself Jeish al-Islam (Army of Islam) but Site could not authenticate it due to a lack of information.
