Journalists Freed From Tripoli Hotel

It appears the standoff at the Rixos hotel is at an end. Journalists say they have been freed after being held for days by soldiers loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Several of the journalists held there say they have left the hotel in a car. About 35 journalists and a former U.S. congressman were detained at the hotel, which served as a hub for correspondents during the war. As rebels gained control of Tripoli, troops loyal to Gaddafi held on to the Rixos and refused to let the journalists there leave the building.
