Some distressing news just broke: Four journalists from The New York Times are missing in Libya. The paper last heard from them Tuesday morning, and sources told the Times that the missing were taken by government forces near the city of Ajdabiya.
Bill Keller said nothing has been confirmed about that report:
We have talked with officials of the Libyan government in Tripoli, and they tell us they are attempting to ascertain the whereabouts of our journalists. We are grateful to the Libyan government for their assurance that if our journalists were captured they would be released promptly and unharmed.
