AFP: BBC Gets Tape from Johnston's Captors

AFP reports today:

The BBC says it is studying the contents of a videotape purportedly from the kidnappers of its Gaza journalist who was taken hostage two months ago.

It was handed the tape, which apparently includes certain demands and pictures, one of which is apparently Alan Johnston's BBC identity card, by the Al Jazeera news channel. . . .

The tape was delivered to Al Jazeera in Gaza, and was produced by a group that calls itself Jaish-e-al-Islam, or The Army of Islam.

The BBC declined to comment further.
