NAPLES, Italy - An Italian tugboat and its 11 crew members, detained in Tripoli on Saturday, have been released and are heading north, the ship's operator said on Sunday.

The tug, crewed by 8 Italians, two Indians and a Ukrainian was detained in Libya at around 1600 GMT on Saturday, shortly before French aircraft fired the first shots against forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
