Ukraine war: British aid worker captured by separatists dies

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

British aid worker Paul Urey is reported to have died after he was captured by Russian-backed separatists in Ukraine and accused of being a mercenary.

He was captured in late April while trying to help a woman flee to Britain from Russian-controlled territory.

He suffered from Type 1 diabetes and a British charity said he was denied treatment.
