Alan Johnston

Alan Johnston has now been in captivity for 100 days. The BBC Gaza correspondent was seized by a group called the Army of Islam. At the weekend Hamas had indicated that Alan Johnston's release was imminent but the Monday deadline passed with out him being released.
At 1:15 today thousands of BBC staff across the world will hold a vigil for Mr Johnston and his parents will release 100 balloons marking the days passed since his abduction. The BBC have set up a petition which has been signed by thousands of people across the globe. I urge you to sign it as well.
