Journalist 'kidnapped and beaten up by pro-Russians' in Ukraine
An American journalist who was kidnapped and held hostage for several days last week by pro-Russian forces in eastern Ukraine has been describing his experiences.
Simon Ostrovsky says he was pulled out of his car and taken to the basement of a local security building by armed men.
He told Newsnight he was blindfolded, had his arms tied behind his back, and was thrown to the floor and beaten up.
