Two British journos accused of spying in Libya freed

London, Mon, 19 Mar 2012 ANI

London, Mar 19 (ANI): Two British journalists, who have been accused of spying in Libya, have been freed.


A Tripoli militia commander earlier said that both journalists, Nicholas Davies-Jones and Gareth Montgomery-Johnson, were suspected of espionage, and were found with classified documents and pictures.


He said the pictures showed "secret sites," and the documents included a detailed database of the mercenaries believed to have been hired by former dictator Muammar Gaddafi to crush the armed uprising against him.


The Foreign Office, however, said on Sunday both journalists have been released into the care of British consular staff, and they are in good condition, Fox News reports.


The men were working for Iran's English-language Press TV when they were seized by a militia group in late February.


On Thursday, the militia said it had handed the journalists over to Libyan state intelligence. (ANI)
