    Johnston, a Scot and British citizen, has been working as the Gaza correspondent for the state-funded British broadcaster for three years. 

    The British embassy said they were investigating the reported kidnap.

     

    The last foreigner to be kidnapped in Gaza was a Peruvian photographer from the French news agency, Agence France-Presse, in early January.
