The United Arab Emirates foreign ministry said Friday the four, held captive by armed groups in Libya, have been released thanks to "intensive efforts" made by the UAE in coordination with the Libyan National Army.
It says the four were civilian engineers working at a desalination plant in Libya.
South Korea's presidential office issued a similar announcement. It says it thanks the UAE government for the rescue efforts.
