So, Why So Much Time?

The Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said yesterday he had been given confirmation that the kidnapped BBC correspondent Alan Johnston was alive.

On a trip to Sweden, Mr Abbas indicated he knew who was holding Mr Johnston, seized by gunmen on 12 March. "Our intelligence services have confirmed to me that he's alive. I want to acquire his release alive. Therefore it is taking some time."
