Bowdoin graduate Aijalon Mahli Gomes was permitted by North Korean authorities to make a telephone call Friday to his mother in Boston. Gomes, a member of the Class of 2001, was arrested in January on charges that he entered North Korea illegally. U.S officials welcomed the “gesture” but are still pressing for Gomes’s release.
