Four Al-Jazeera journalists detained

Qatar-based satellite TV station Al-Jazeera announced that four of its journalists had been detained by pro-Gaddafi forces a week previously. The four are Mauritian reporter Ahmed Vall Ould el-Dine, Tunisian reporter Lotfi Messaoudi, Norwegian photographer Ammar Al-Hamdane and British photographer Kamel Ataloua. They had entered Libya via the border with Tunisia and were covering the fighting between rebels and pro-Gaddafi forces at Zawiya, west of the capital Tripoli.
