Libya journalists freed from ex-Gaddafi stronghold
Two Libyan journalists kidnapped in a former stronghold of ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi while covering the country's elections last week have been released, a colleague and an official mediating in the stand-off said on Sunday.

Reporter Abdelqadir Fassouk and cameraman Yusuf Badi disappeared on July 7 near Bani Walid - one of the last Gaddafi strongholds to fall during an eight-month uprising.

The journalists, who work for the Misrata-based Tobacts TV station, had been covering Libya's historic election for a 200-seat national assembly in the western town of Mizdah and were on their way back to Misrata when contact with them was lost.
