Ten Tunisian consular staff kidnapped in Libya's capital Tripoli are in good condition and contact has been made with their captors, the interior minister for Libya's self-declared government said on Saturday.

Tunisia said on Friday an armed group had stormed the consulate and kidnapped staff. Most diplomats left Tripoli after an armed faction called Libya Dawn took over the city and set up its own government there last summer.

"I am in contact with the group who abducted the Tunisian staff and hopefully the staff will be freed soon," Interior Minister Mohamed Shaiteer told Reuters. "They are in good condition."

No group has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping.
