REPORT: U.S. Journalists Missing In Libya

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Times says that four of its journalists who are reporting on the conflict in Libya are missing. Editors at the newspaper say they last heard from the journalists on Tuesday.

The newspaper's executive editor, Bill Keller, says in a report on its website that Libyan officials tell the newspaper they are trying to locate the journalists. He says the newspaper is grateful to the Libyan government for its assurance "that if our journalists were captured they would be released promptly and unharmed."

The missing journalists are Pulitzer-Prize-winning reporter Anthony Shadid, the newspaper's Beirut bureau chief; Stephen Farrell, a reporter and videographer; and photographers Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario.
