The kidnappers of Alan Johnston, a BBC correspondent in Gaza, have released a video of Johnston, the first sign that he might be still alive since he was captured.

Johnston was abducted 11 weeks ago, apparently by Islamist militants linked to al-Qaida. The video was undated; at the time it was recorded Johnston, said he was in good health and was being well treated by his captors.
