CAIRO - Al Jazeera television said on Saturday that the Libyan authorities had detained one of its reporting teams several days ago when working in west Libya.




The channel said, in a report on its website, that the team included two correspondents, one Tunisian and another Mauritanian, and two cameramen, one Norwegian and one British.




An Al Jazeera official said the Qatar-based channel held the Libyan authorities responsible for the team's safety and said there were regional efforts to secure the team's release.
