Alan Johnston, the kidnapped BBC Gaza correspondent, has been missing for 52 days. Johnston was abducted in March by masked gunmen. Jon Williams, World News editor for the BBC, talks about threats facing journalists in Gaza, and highlights dangers in Iraq, Sudan and other conflict zones. On Thursday, a rally was held in New York at the United Nations to call for Johnston's release.
