Two British journalists detained in Libya are suspected of spying, the militia that is holding them says.
Faraj al-Swehli, commander of a Misrata brigade, said the men had entered Libya illegally and were carrying “incriminating evidence”.
He said the activities of reporter Nicholas Davies, 37, and cameraman Gareth Montgomery-Johnson, 36, from Carmarthen, were being investigated.
The men had been working for Iran’s English-language TV station Press TV.
Rights groups have called for their release.
