Memorial at New Hampshire church honors slain journalist


ALTON, N.H. (AP) — Slain journalist James Foley has been honored with a stone memorial outside the church he attended while growing up in New Hampshire. Foley, a freelance journalist, was among a group of Westerners brutally murdered in Islamic State captivity in Syria in 2014. He grew up in Wolfeboro and attended St. Katharine Drexel Church in Alton, where the memorial was unveiled Sunday. Father Bob Cole told WMUR-TV that parishioners wanted to ensure that they would never forget that Foley was a part of their family. Two British IS militants have either pleaded guilty or been found guilty by a jury in connection with Foley’s death and are serving life sentences.
