James Foley vigil in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News)  More than 300 people attended a memorial vigil in Milwaukee last night for James Foley, the journalist from Marquette University who was beheaded by terrorists in Syria. Speakers remembered the 40-year-old Foley as a man committed to social justice and vigilance ever since he studied history and Spanish at Marquette in the mid-1990's.

The Reverend Fred Zagone said Foley embraced the Jesuit mission he learned at Marquette -- to fight for underdogs, help those in need, and write about things that no one else will. But Zagone said it wasn't until a few years ago that the lessons fully resonated with him. That was after Foley was kidnapped in Libya while covering that nation's civil war in 2011. He was held for 44 days then, and he later returned to Milwaukee to talk about the ordeal.

Foley was kidnapped again in late 2012, while covering the civil war in Syria for a U-S online publication. The Islamic State released a video of his beheading last week.
