In international news, amidst the turmoil and chaos in Libya (including new US military involvement), four detained New York Times journalists were released today, six days after they were captured while covering the conflict between government and rebel forces in the eastern city of Ajdabiya. Like many Western journalists, they had entered the rebel-controlled eastern region of Libya, without visas, over the Egyptian border to cover the insurrection against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. They were detained by forces loyal to Colonel Qaddafi in Ajdabiya, but have now been released into the custody of Turkish diplomats.
