Four New York Times journalists found in Libya

Turns out the four New York Times journalists who went missing in Libya were captured by Col. Moammar Gadhafi's forces. The Libyan dictator's son says they will be released today.

From AP:
The journalists are Anthony Shadid, The Times' Beirut bureau chief and a two-time Pulitzer-prize winning foreign correspondent; two photographers, Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario, who have extensive experience in war zones; and a reporter and videographer, Stephen Farrell, who in 2009 was captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan and was rescued by British commandos.
Gadhafi has reportedly called a cease-fire in his country, a day after the UN Security Council passed a resolution to allow "all necessary measures" to stop his forces from attacking civilian rebel groups.
