Johnston released

Ending one of the most watched journalist kidnapping cases in the Middle East, the BBC's Alan Johnston has just been freed after pressure from militant group/political party Hamas on his renegade captors. Johnston had been held for nearly four long months. He served as BBC New's Gaza correspondent; the BBC is the only international news organization with a bureau in Gaza.
