Lynsey Adario, one of the New York Times journalists who was captured in Libya, did an interview with NPR’s Morning Edition. It aired on Friday and the audio is available online.
For instance, there was the night that a soldier riding in the passenger seat leaned back to stroke Addario’s hair and face — repeatedly murmuring a phrase in Arabic.
Addario was blindfolded at the time. And when she finally asked her colleague Anthony Shadid what the man was saying to her, he translated it as “You’re going to die.”
