NEW YORK - Four journalists covering the fighting in Libya for The New York Times are missing, the newspaper said on Wednesday.

The New York Times said the journalists, who included two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Anthony Shadid, were last in contact with their editors on Tuesday morning from the town of Ajdabiya.

Also missing were Stephen Farrell -- a reporter and videographer who was kidnapped by the Taliban in 2009 and rescued by British commandos -- and two photographers, Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario, the newspaper said.
