The AFP journalists are reporter Dave Clark and photographer Roberto Schmidt. They were accompanied by a photographer for Getty Images, Joe Raedle, who is also missing.
AFP said Sunday the journalists planned to meet opponents of Libyan leader Moammar Kaddafi and interview people fleeing the fighting between Kaddafi’s forces and rebels.
