Official: 4 reporters held in Libya to be freed

A Libyan government spokesman says four reporters detained since early April will be released Tuesday or Wednesday following an administrative hearing.
Spokesman Moussa Ibrahim told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the four already had faced a judge in an administrative court and were to be freed soon.
Ibrahim gave their names as James Foley, who had been covering the conflict in Libya for the Boston-based news agency GlobalPost, and Claire Morgana Gillis, a freelance journalist who wrote for The Atlantic and USA Today.
He also named Manu Brabo, a Spanish journalist picked up with Foley and Gillis. The fourth was expected to be photojournalist Anton Hammerl, who has South African and Austrian citizenships.
