BOSTON — A New Hampshire journalist held captive for six weeks in Libya says he constantly relives watching a fellow journalist get killed and will regret that day the rest of his life.
James Foley, of Rochester, N.H., told The Associated Press on Friday he witnessed South African photographer Anton Hammerl get wounded by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. Foley says he and three other journalists were then roughed up by Libyan forces and taken captive, but Hammerl's body was left in the desert.
Foley was covering the Libyan conflict for the Boston-based international news site GlobalPost. He spoke to The Associated Press from GlobalPost's offices.
Foley, American freelance journalist Clare Morgana Gillis of New Haven, Conn., and Spanish photographer Manu Brabo were released by Libyan authorities last week.
