Atlantic reporter Clare Morgana Gillis and three other reporters who were detained in Libya have been released, according to media reports.

A Libyan government spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, told the Associated Press that the reporters were in good health.

The other journalists included U.S. reporter James Foley, Spanish photographer Manu Brabo, and Briton Nigel Chandler, Reuters reported Wednesday.

Gillis told reporters at Tripoli's Rixos Hotel that she and her colleagues are fine and that they were let go on Wednesday, the AP reported.

 

She and the other journalists were given a one-year sentence on the charge that they entered Libya illegally. The sentence was commuted, she told reporters.
