"The Dutch Foreign Ministry confirmed on Thursday that forces loyal to embattled Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi had captured three Dutch soldiers who were on an evacuation mission and added that 'intense negotiations' were on to secure their release. According to the Ministry, the Dutch soldiers were captured by the pro-Qadhafi forces after their helicopter was forced to land near the port of Sirte on Sunday. They were on a mission to evacuate two Dutch nationals stranded in the town in the wake of anti-government protests in Libya." (03/03/11)
