The World Remembers Journalist James Foley

Remembering journalist James Foley. That's today on The World.

The FBI today says it believes that a web video published by the Islamic State purporting to show the execution of kidnapped journalist James Foley is, in fact, real. We're pursuing a number of angles on the story. We're looking to bring you the voice of someone who worked closely with Foley. We'll also explore why it's been so hard to get news out of Syria since the civil war began.

Plus, part two in our story of an undocumented Salvadoran couple living in Baltimore who have been trying to get their kids to the United States.

And we'll also speak with author Sheri Fink, who has been writing about the vacuum that's being created in West Africa when Western doctors are forced to leave due to the severity of the Ebola outbreak.

All that, plus we'll look back on the life of Indian yoga guru B.K.S. Iyengar, who was exceedingly influential in bringing the practice of yoga to an American audience.
