Alan Johnston: 'Good to go back' to West Bank

Former hostage and BBC journalist Alan Johnston has returned to report on the Middle East for the first time since he was released from captivity in Gaza two years ago.

He said it was ''good to go back'' to Nablus, the biggest and most commercial city in the West Bank.

BBC news tracked his capture and eventual freedom amid scenes of jubilation.
