Alan Johnston Freed Today

I've just seen on the news that the kidnapped BBC journalist Alan Johnston was freed earlier this morning and handed over to Hamas officials in Gaza, after 114 days in captivity. He told reporters it was "the most fantastic thing to be free" and that he had been in the hands of "dangerous and unpredictable" people.

I'm exceedingly glad, and wish him all the best in his recovery from this "appalling experience" as he put it. And a massive well done, of course, to all those people who have been working tirelessly around the world on his behalf.

Now I can take that link off my POF site to the Free Alan Johnston campaign!
