Breaking: Journalists Have Been Freed From Tripoli Hotel

Matthew Chance has just called in to CNN to report that the many journalists held against their will by pro-Gaddafi forces in the Tripoli hotel Rixos have been allowed to leave. Chance reported “we have now left the compound of the Rixos Hotel all of the 36 journalists that were kept inside, essentially against their will, in what we considered all along a hostage situation, have been allowed to go.”

All journalists appear to be okay with no injuries a part from some “emotional scars” as Chance told CNN host Kyra Phillips. Watch the video below, courtesy of CNN:
