Alan Johnston in good health

Alan Johnston, the BBC News reporter kidnapped in Gaza three months ago has been shown in a video released to an Islamic militant Web site. Alan says he is well fed, in good health and there's been no violence towards him. The video was released yesterday (Friday).

Alan's family, Graham, Margaret and Katriona Johnston — have issued the following statement:

"We are very pleased to see Alan and to hear him say that he is not being ill-treated — although it is clearly distressing for us to see him in these circumstances. We're being kept fully informed and involved by the BBC, as we have been since the day Alan was abducted. We're grateful to everyone who's been supporting us and we hope that he'll be released very soon."

The BBC say:

"We are studying the video very carefully. We have been working very closely with Alan's family for the past 81 days. This is a highly distressing time for them and for his friends and his colleagues. We repeat our call for his immediate release."
