Finally, Good News for Detained Atlantic Journo

After 16 days of silence, the Atlantic reports that their freelancer, Clare Morgana Gillis, who was detained by the Libyan government, has spoken with her parents and is doing well.

In a 15-minute phone call yesterday, Gillis said she was being held in a women’s jail in Tripoli, but assured her parents she was in good health and hadn’t been mistreated. Her father, Robert, said he and his wife were “so relieved” to hear from their daughter, but were “still urgently appealing to the Libyan government to let her come home.”

Two other journalists were detained with Gillis: James Foley of GlobalPost and Spanish photographer Manuel Bravo. Gillis was separated from them in Tripoli. Their whereabouts are unknown. Another journalist, South African photographer Anton Hammerl, was thought to have been detained with the other three, but Gillis confirmed that he was not.
