Libya to Release New York Times Reporters

The four New York Times reporters who went missing in Libya this week have been located and could be released soon, the newspaper reported. Seif Islam al-Gadhafi, the son of Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi, told ABC they would be released Friday. The four vanished Tuesday while covering rebels fighting in the eastern part of the nation. The Times immediately suspected they had been swept up by Gadhafi's forces, and that appears to have been the case. One of the reporters, Stephen Farrell, was kidnapped in Afghanistan before being freed by British commandos, two of whom died in the effort.
