Italian Reporters Kidnapped in Libya Called Home, Editor Says

Two of the four Italian journalists kidnapped yesterday by a group loyal to the regime of Muammar Qaddafi in Libya called their relatives in a sign that they may be freed soon, the editor in chief of Corriere della Sera said.

They “have called home, a positive sign,” Ferruccio de Bortoli said in a Twitter posting. “The hope that they can be freed is gaining strength,” he added.

The four journalists who work for Corriere della Sera, La Stampa and Avvenire dailies, were taken as they drove from Zawiyah to Tripoli, news agency Ansa reported yesterday, citing Bruno Tucci, president of the Lazio Press Club.

The kidnappers killed the driver of the car in which the journalists were traveling, Ansa said.
