(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The outpouring of support continues for the Utah family of a Marine who's being held hostage.
A troop of local Boy Scouts placed about two dozen American flags around the perimeter of the Hassoun family's lawn in West Jordan. The scout master of Troop 11-33 says the boys received permission from the family to add the flags this morning.
The flags join an American flag and Marine flag that were placed there by a neighbor yesterday.
The Marines last night officially changed the status of Corporal Wassef Ali Hassoun from "missing" to "captured."
