After seven days of imprisonment, beatings and death threats, Shadid and his colleagues were released, but not before getting an inside look at the Gadhafi regime.

Tyler Hicks, one of the journalists captured with Shadid, spoke Friday with WBUR's Here & Now. Another, Lynsey Addario, spoke with NPR's Morning Edition Friday.
