The mayor of Libya's capital Tripoli has been arrested and is under interrogation, the prosecution said Thursday, hours after the city council reported he had been kidnapped.Armed men stormed Abdel-Raouf Hassan Beitelmal's house Wednesday night and took him "by force of arms," the city council said in a statement.The city council had announced that Beitelmal's office was suspending all its activities in protest at his "kidnapping".Two authorities -- the Tripoli-based unity government and a rival administration in the east -- are vying for control of Libya.
