Margot Wallstrom

Today, BBC staff in Brussels held a vigil to mark the fifth week that their Gaza reporter, Alan Johnston has been held hostage by an unknown group.

There were plenty of journalists present and Margot gave a short but impressive speech backing press freedom and the importance of allowing journalists to do their job.

Speaking on behalf of the BBC was their Brussels correspondent, Johnny Diamond who made a direct appeal to the kidnappers to release Alan. I managed to get a short interview with Johnny, listen to it here
