Two British journalists are back in the UK after being held captive by Libyan militia Misrata Brigade and accused of spying for Israel, the BBC reported.

The Libyans mistook the journalists’ language for Hebrew. As a result, Gareth Montgomery-Johnson and Nicholas Davies-Jones were held in Tripoli last month. They were eventually handed over to Libya’s interior ministry and were released after apologizing for their actions.
