Parents want missing US journalist Clare Gillis home

The parents of Clare Gillis, an American freelance journalist detained by Libyan security forces since the beginning of April, have finally heard from their daughter.

In a 15-minute phone call, Clare told Bob and Jane Gillis that she was being held in a women's prison in Tripoli and was in good health.

Shortly before that call, Bob and Jane Gillis spoke to the BBC's Matt Frei about their campaign to get her home.
