NEW YORK/WASHINGTON - Libya released four New York Times journalists on Monday, nearly a week after they had been captured by Libyan forces while covering the conflict there, although three journalists for other outlets remained missing.




The release had been in the works since Thursday, with Turkey serving as intermediary between the US and Libyan governments.




The four, who had been allowed to speak to their families on Thursday, were released to the Turkish embassy in Tripoli and later arrived safely in Tunisia, the Times said.
