Taylor allowed to speak to family

THE Australian lawyer being detained in Libya has been allowed to speak with her husband and daughter for the first time since her arrest on June 7.

Melinda Taylor, who was in Libya as part of an International Criminal Court delegation when she was detained, told her family she was well and in good spirits.

Foreign Minister Bob Carr said the phone call followed an earlier 20-minute meeting between Ms Taylor and Australia's Ambassador to Libya David Ritchie at the Zintan prison where Ms Taylor is detained.

The meeting and phone call follow recent talks between Libyan and ICC representatives in The Hague, as proposed by Australia on June 19.

They also follow statements by the United Nations Security Council, calling for the release of all ICC staff, and representations by Australian and European Governments.
