BOSTON (AP) — The New Hampshire-based family of a journalist missing in Syria is speaking about him at a Boston event celebrating "World Press Freedom Day."

James Foley was last seen on Nov. 22 in northwest Syria, where he was contributing videos to Agence France-Press. His family in Rochester, N.H., says he was kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

A presentation of Foley's work and a panel discussion featuring members of his family is taking place Friday at the Pilot House Annex/Lewis Wharf. The gathering starts at 10 a.m.

World Press Freedom Day is held each year to raise awareness about journalists around the world, who are censored, arrested, attacked and even murdered because of their work.
