Dozens of foreign and Palestinian journalists held simultaneous demonstrations on both sides of Israel's border with the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, calling for the release of a British Broadcasting Corp. correspondent who was kidnapped by Palestinian gunmen six weeks ago. Alan Johnston, 44, a BBC correspondent, was abducted by gunmen on March 12 and has not been seen or heard from since then. "We have not forgotten his plight and we will not stop until he is freed," said Simon McGregor-Wood, chairman of the Foreign Press Association, reading a statement for the group. "There has been precious little reliable information as to his well-being or whereabouts." The FPA, which organized Wednesday's demonstration, represents some 500 journalists covering Israel and the Palestinian territories for foreign media.
