Chance: Everybody is OK, no injuries

Broadcasting live across CNNUS and CNN International, Matthew Chance calls in to report that the journalists in the Rixos hotel in Tripoli had managed to leave the hotel.  Chance called the experience a “nightmare” and “very frightening” after he got out.

He said the journalists had been held “by crazy gunmen” waving Gadhafi flags and brandishing automatic weapons.
