Kidnapped BBC Reporter Freed

160_ap_johnston This just in: CBC News Online reports that the BBC’s Alan Johnston has just been released after four months in captivity.

The BBC said Alan Johnston, 45, was released to Hamas officials, who seized control of the Gaza Strip three weeks ago.

According to the Ceeb: "Television images showed a wan and frail Johnston leaving a building in the Gaza Strip and entering a waiting car, accompanied by armed men."

Will the media laud praise for Hamas and paint it as Johnston’s saviour?

Only time will tell.
