Four New York Times journalists who were held captive in Libya for six days were freed Monday by authorities and crossed the border into Tunisia, the newspaper said.
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.
"Photojournalists are routinely putting their lives on the line," said Lynsey Addario, who donated a photo and who was herself held captive in Libya for six days in 2011. "It's important to recognize when one of us gets killed and try to help the family when at all possible."
