JANZOUR, Libya Aug 31 (Reuters) - Muammar Gaddafi's foreign minister, Abdelati Obeidi, was arrested on Tuesday at his farm in Janzour, a suburb west of Tripoli, a Reuters correspondent said.

Rebel forces shouted "Allahu Akbar" or "God is greatest" as they arrested him, the correspondent said. (Reporting by Ismail Zitouny and Salah Sarrar; Writing by Richard Valdmanis; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
