'New York Times' Journalists To Be Released, Gadhafi's Son Says

Four New York Times staffers who have been missing in Libya for several days have been in the hands of Moammar Gadhafi's regime and will be released some time today, one of Gadhafi's sons has told ABC News' Christiane Amanpour.

As we previously reported, the four are:

Anthony Shadid, the Beirut bureau chief and twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize for foreign reporting; Stephen Farrell, a reporter and videographer who was kidnapped by the Taliban in 2009 and rescued by British commandos; and photographers, Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario.
