Barghouti calls for release of BBC journalist
04/18/2007
Imprisoned Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti appealed Wednesday to the kidnappers of BBC journalist Alan Johnston to release him immediately, calling him a "friend" of the Palestinians. Johnston, 44, was abducted by Palestinian gunmen in Gaza City on March 12 and has not been seen or heard from since then. He has been held longer than any other journalist. "From my cell, and in the name of 10,000 prisoners in the occupation jails, I appeal and call immediately for the release of journalist Alan Johnston, the friend of the Palestinian people," Barghouti said in a statement sent to reporters.
