The families of four New York Times journalists who were captured last week by pro-government forces in Libya can rest easy this morning, according to CNN.
The government of Turkey intervened to oversee the release of the journalists, who have arrived safely in Tunisia. They are currently staying in the Turkish embassy.
The four journalists are Anthony Shadid, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Stephen Farrell, who was kidnapped by the Taliban in 2009, as well as Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario.
They went missing on Tuesday but by Thursday they were allowed to contact their families, and the New York Times was contacted on Thursday that they would be set free.
