British journalists released in Libya

PanARMENIAN.Net - Two British journalists detained in Libya after admitting entering the country illegally have been released, the Foreign Office has confirmed, according to BBC News.

Gareth Montgomery-Johnson, from Carmarthen, and Nicholas Davies-Jones, of Berkshire, were held last month.

The Libyan Interior Ministry earlier said the two men had been released and would be deported on Monday, March 19.

The journalists, who had been working for the Iranian broadcaster Press TV, have apologized for their actions.
