Husband of NYT photographer missing in Libya makes appeal *


Lynsey Addario (almost off-camera, on left) and Tyler Hicks (on the right, in the glasses) are the two New York Times photographers missing in Libya. This photo by Reuters photographer Paul Conroy shows journalists and others running for cover from government bombs last Friday. (Hat tip: New York magazine.) It's the last known photograph of the pair, who have been missing since Tuesday along with New York Times correspondents Anthony Shadid and Stephen Farrell. [* Names corrected; my mistake.]

Tonight, Addario's husband Paul de Bendern, Reuters bureau chief in India, posted on Twitter:

hope my wife Lynsey Addario, New York Times colleagues Tyler Hicks, Anthony Shadid and Stephen Farrell come out of Libya safely and soon.

He also was interviewed on CNN. The Times has had little to say since yesterday's blog post. But the staff of the New York Times Magazine posted a blog item today titled Missing Friends, along with a picture of Addario shooting militiamen burning a village during the atrocities in Darfur:

All four colleagues have faced many dangers before. Our thoughts are with them now. We’re looking forward to having them back.
