Nigeria rescue bid: Kidnapped Briton and Italian killed
A Briton and an Italian abducted by gunmen in Nigeria last year have died in a failed rescue attempt, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has announced.
He said it appeared Chris McManus - from north-west England - and Franco Lamolinara had been "murdered by their captors before they could be rescued".
British forces supported the Nigerian-led operation, Mr Cameron said.
Gordon Corera reports.
