60 Minutes crew to be charged with kidnapping

Four members of a 60 Minutes crew will be formally charged with kidnapping-related offences in Lebanon today.

The Channel Nine TV crew, including reporter Tara Brown, were among a group of people arrested after a botched attempt to take the children of Australian mother Sally Faulkner off the streets of the capital, Beirut.

The 60 Minutes crew will appear individually before a court to be formally charged. They could face more than three years in jail.

Lebanese authorities have claimed they have uncorroborated evidence Nine paid for the failed child abduction.

Authorities said they had a signed statement from a member of the "recovery team" who said Nine paid $115,000 for the operation.
