Two slain journalists with NH ties - Foley, Sotloff - honored at Newseum in DC


On Monday Rochester native James Foley and Kimball Union Academy graduate Steven Sotloff had their names added to a memorial of fallen journalists at the Newseum in Washington, DC.

They are among 80 journalists killed in 2014. Both were murdered by Islamic extremists while working in Syria.

"Jim and Steven suffered horrific deaths, but in my mind worse than dying, worse than being murdered, is being forgotten," said James Foley's father, John, during the ceremony.
