The kidnappers of a Tunisian diplomat in Tripoli have demanded the release of Islamist militants detained in Tunisia, Tunisia's foreign minister said on Friday. The diplomat was kidnapped on Thursday in the Libyan capital, the second one within a month. "They belong to the family of a group of terrorists detained in Tunisia because of their involvement in attacks (three years ago) against security forces in Rouhia city." He said Tunisia was considering reducing its diplomatic mission in Libya.

By Aleksandar Vasovic DONETSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - The self-declared leader of pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, Denis Pushilin, on Friday said he does not consider his men to be bound by an agreement between Russia and Ukraine requiring illegal groups to disarm and vacate buildings. The Geneva agreement, signed by the United States, Russia, Ukraine and the European Union on Thursday, requires all illegal armed groups to disarm and end to the illegal occupation of public buildings, streets and squares. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov "did not sign anything for us, he signed on behalf of the Russian Federation," Pushilin, head of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic, told journalists in Donetsk. Ukraine announced a military-backed operation last weekend to flush out pro-Russian rebels who have taken over state buildings including police stations in the Donbass region, though the operation faltered when pro-Russian forces seized several army troop carriers.
