BEIRUT (Reuters) - An Australian woman and television crew charged with kidnapping her children from their father in Beirut were set to be released on Wednesday, a judge said, after an out-of-court settlement was reached between the sides.

The mother, Sally Faulkner, and four-member Australian “60 minutes” television crew were charged on April 12 with involvement with kidnapping after the woman’s two children were snatched off the street following a custody dispute with their Lebanese father.

(The story was refiled to correct the date of charges in paragraph 2)
