Johnston's Captors Make Three Demands

Johnston's kidnappers demand the release of Sajida Rishawi, a failed suicide bomber implicated in the November 2005 bombing in Amman, which killed 57

Palestinian Ma'an News Agency reports today that the Gazans holding BBC reporter Alan Johnston have finally issued their demands:

The first demand is to be fulfilled by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and is for the captors to be illegally given an area of land. The sources gave no further details about this demand.

The second demand is to be met by the Jordanian authorities and is the release of the Iraqi female captive, Sajida Rishawi, who is accused of planning the explosions in the Jordanian capital of Amman on the 9th of November 2006.

The third demand is for the BBC to pay a ransom of $5million.
