He was head of a group which helped people who’ve fled persecution in Belarus – now the leading activist Vitaly Shishov has been found dead in the city where he was living in exile.

Police in the Ukranian capital Kyiv are now investigating whether he was murdered. Also today, Boris Johnson met the exiled Belarus opposition leader Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya in Downing Street promising that the UK was on her side.
