ANKARA - Three Turks who had been held captive in Libya since June have been released, said Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Tuesday.

"Turkish citizens who had been held captive in Tarhunah, a Libyan town 90 kilometers [southeast of] Tripoli, were released [on Monday]," Davutoglu said on his official twitter account. 

Davutoglu said that they were delivered to Turkey's Misurata consulate and that they were in good health and safe.

Two of the workers Nazim Supurgeci and Emrah Bahceci, who were working for Summa International Construction company, were abducted on June 24 as they were travelling back to their camp near the airport.

Another Turkish citizen Necip Fazil Coskunsu had not been heard from since he went missing in June.
