Australia minister goes to Libya, asks for ICC release

SYDNEY -- Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr Monday headed to Libya to press for the release of an International Criminal Court (ICC) team who are being held after meeting the son of dead dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

The delegation, including Australian Melinda Taylor and colleagues from Lebanon, Russia and Spain, were detained on June 7 as they helped Seif al-Islam choose a defense lawyer.

Libyan officials have alleged Taylor was carrying a pen camera and attempting to give Seif a coded letter from his former right-hand man, Mohammed Ismail, who is on the run. On Friday, the U.N. Security Council expressed "serious concern" over Libya's detention of the four.
