Foreign journalists based in Thailand are planning to gather in Bangkok Tuesday for an event in support of Alan Johnston, a reporter for the BBC who was kidnapped at gun point in Gaza City seven weeks ago. Similar events are expected to take place in Beijing and Jakarta later this week.  Since Johnson was seized, there has been no direct information on his fate. There have been widespread protests about the kidnapping in the UK and Israel, and in the West Bank and Gaza. Johnson had lived and worked in Gaza for three years and was the only Western reporter permanently based in the often violent and lawless territory.
