Ukraine crisis: Military observer freed in Sloviansk
One of the team of European monitors seized by pro-Russian separatists in the eastern Ukrainian flashpoint city of Sloviansk on Friday has been freed.
The man, reportedly Swedish, was released on medical grounds, a separatist spokeswoman told the BBC.
The eight monitors - linked to the Vienna-based Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe - were shown to the media on Sunday.
Intensive diplomacy has been going on to try to secure their freedom.
