I’ve just seen Alan Johnston’s latest video on the news. The poor guy had explosives strapped around his waist and was reading out a speech written for him by his captors. Creepily, he delivered the words as though presenting a news report for the BBC: calm and unhurried, with only the tiniest edge of fear in his voice.
Possibly the most moving thing I’ve seen in a while. Hurry up and come home, Alan.
