Libya Frees Detained British Journalists

Two detained British journalists suspected of spying on Libya were released by a militia Sunday. Nicholas Davies-Jones and Gareth Montgomery-Johnson, employees of Iran’s Press TV, were held since February 22 by one of the militias behind the ouster of Gaddafi. The men were originally detained for entering the nation illegally, and were shown on video Tuesday apologizing for doing so. In another video, the journalists said that they were being treated fairly. The men are expected to leave Libya Monday. The incident is a reminder of the shaky transition the nation has had since its dictator was pushed out of power.
