On March 15, four New York Times journalists were captured by Moammar Gadhafi's  forces while covering the fighting in Libya. They were held for four brutal days before being freed, and they are now back in the U.S. reflecting on the experience.

Photographer Tyler Hicks joins us to tell the story of what he, fellow photographer Lynsey Addario, and reporters Stephen Farrell and Anthony Shadid went through.

This segment aired on April 1, 2011.
