A Moroccan captured while fighting for Ukraine is among three people who have been sentenced to death by a Russian proxy court in eastern Ukraine.

Brahim Saaudun and Britons Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner are accused of being mercenaries, Russian state media says.

The court, which is not internationally recognised, is in the pro-Russian so-called Donetsk People’s Republic.

The UK and Ukraine have condemned the sentences for violating international laws protecting prisoners of war.
