The State Department has released an advisory recommending against news media organizations sending journalists into Libya at this time.

Acting deputy spokesman Mark Toner said Saturday night that no U.S. officials remain in the country, and says U.S. citizens already in Libya should get out immediately.

Earlier, the Al-Jazeera television network reported that Libyan authorities had detained a team of its journalists in the western part of the country.
