RABAT - Two AFP journalists and a photographer arrested in Libya last week were released in Tripoli, the agency said on Wednesday.

Al Jazeera television also said authorities would release its reporting crew within 24 hours.

According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, journalists have suffered 60 attacks in Libya since last month, resulting in two dead and 36 detentions.

Libyan government forces arrested AFP reporters Dave Clark, Roberto Schmidt and Getty Images photographer Joe Raedle on Saturday near the eastern town of Ajdabiyah.
