The Libyan authorities will free three Western journalists, two from Agence France-Presse and one from the Getty agency, in "one or two hours," a spokesman for the regime said on Tuesday.

"The leader of the revolution (Moamer Kadhafi) received an appeal from the French press agency, the CEO Mr Emmanuel Hoog, and the leader basically asked the Libyan state and government to release these journalists and indeed they are going to be released within the next hour or two," Mussa Ibrahim said.
