British journalist Paul Martin is escorted by a member of the Islamist Hamas movement after his release in Gaza City on 11 March 2010. Martin was arrested on 14 February when he voluntarily appeared at a court in Gaza City to testify on behalf of a Palestinian activist on trial for alleged collaboration with Israel. Taher al-Noono, a spokesman for the Hamas administration in the Gaza Strip, said Martin's release came in response to request from South African and British diplomats in the West Bank.
