Libya has released four workers from the International Criminal Court
who were detained after visiting Seif al-Islam, son of slain leader
Muammar Gaddafi last month, a brigade commander said.
"The four members (of the ICC team) were released," Ajmi al-Atiri,
commander of a brigade holding Seif al-Islam Kadhafi told journalists in
Zintan, a hilltop town southwest of Tripoli, on Monday.
The four, including Australian lawyer Melinda Taylor, have been held in
Zintan since June 7 after travelling there to help prepare Seif's defence.
