Libyan officials are interceding on behalf of the nation's senior Roman Catholic prelate, held by a "revolutionary committee" in Benghazi, an Italian diplomat said. The diplomat quoted the officials as saying that Bishop Giovanni Martinelli is being treated well but that they have been denied a visit with him as well as with the three Franciscan friars and a nun who were seized last week. The diplomat said the four are being questioned for unknown reasons by the revolutionary committee, one of many semi-autonomous Libyan groups.
