Libya's government was in talks on Sunday with Egypt to resolve a hostage crisis after gunmen kidnapped five Egyptian diplomats in Tripoli in retaliation for Egypt's arrest of a top Libyan militia commander.Gunmen grabbed five diplomatic staff from their homes in the Libyan capital within 24 hours, including the cultural attache, after the powerful Islamist-leaning militia reported its commander Shaban Hadia was detained in Egypt. Hadia commands the Operations Room of Libya's Revolutionaries, a powerful militia, which denied it was involved in the Egyptian kidnappings.The group was accused of briefly abducting Libya's Prime Minister Ali Zeidan in Tripoli in October last year.
