The employer of one of two American journalists being detained by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi (MOO'-ah-mar gah-DAH'-fee) says they've been allowed a visitor for the first time after more than a month in captivity.
James Foley was covering the conflict in Libya for the Boston-based news agency GlobalPost when he was captured April 5. Foley has been detained with Clare Morgana Gillis, a freelance journalist who wrote for The Atlantic and USA Today.
A GlobalPost spokesman said Wednesday an intermediary visited Foley and Gillis in Tripoli and said they were in good health and being treated well.
Dozens of relatives, friends and well-wishers attended a candlelight vigil Wednesday evening on the steps of Harvard University's Memorial Church.
Foley's family is from Rochester, N.H. Gillis' parents live in New Haven, Conn.
