Libya declared an immediate cease-fire Friday, trying to fend off international military intervention after the U.N. authorized a no-fly zone and "all necessary measures" to prevent the regime from striking its own people. A rebel spokesman said Moammar Gadhafi's forces were still shelling two cities.

The New York Times says it's holding out hope that four of its journalists who went missing while covering the Libyan conflict are alive and in the custody of the Libyan government.
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said Wednesday that the international community needs to act immediately to impose a no-fly zone over Libya, stressing that "time is running out" for Libyan freedom fighters.
Four journalists with the New York Times have disappeared while reporting on fighting in Libya, the newspaper said Wednesday.
