Most of the news out of Libya focuses on the battle between Moammar Gadhafi’s security forces and the Libyan rebels. But what about the civilians, the foreign aid workers and the journalists who have to live with the chaos war leaves behind? James Foley is a freelance journalist reporting from Libya. He was captured by Libyan security forces in April and has been detained in Brega ever since. His mother Diane Foley joins us to talk about her son’s detention and the turmoil in Libya.
