American journalist James Foley was a beloved companion to colleagues in dangerous corners of the Middle East and battled to tell the human stories of civilians caught up in chaos.The 40-year-old freelance reporter was kidnapped in northern Syria in November 2012 and held for almost two years before being beheaded Tuesday by militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) in revenge for U.S. airstrikes.Colleagues from across the world's media paid tribute Wednesday to the bravery, compassion and good humor he brought to his chosen task, shining light on communities trapped in the darkness of war.Reporter Daphne Benoit of Agence France Presse worked alongside Foley in the rebel Libyan city of Misrata in October 2011, covering the bloody final days of Moammar Gadhafi's collapsing but still vicious regime. Colleagues remember Foley's focus on the human face of the conflicts.Foley's work in Idlib was not forgotten by the Syrian people there, either.
