Unidentified gunmen have seized two Ukrainian journalists in Crimea, Reporters Without Borders said, warning that those behind attacks on the media were trying to turn the region into a "black hole for news".
Olena Maksymenko of Ukrainsky Tizhden (Ukranian Week) and freelance photographer Oles Kromplyas are missing, the Paris-based press freedom watchdog said.
"We demand that they (those controlling Crimea) provide immediate information about their location and state of health, and that they release them without delay," Christophe Deloire, secretary general for Reporters Without Borders, said in a statement.
He claimed that Crimea is turning into "a lawless region controlled by armed bands," adding: "The frequency of deliberate attacks on journalists and the scale of the censorship suggest a desire to turn the region into a black hole for news and information."
Maksymenko disappeared with Kateryna Butko and Aleksandra Ryazantseva, two activists from the Maidan protest movement which backs the new government in Kiev, while Kromplyas was seized with driver Yevhen Rakhno, Crimean journalist Oleksiy Byk from the Glavkom news website, told the watchdog.
The remains of an 800-year-old monk have been uncovered, poking out of a cliff face in the Vale of Glamorgan.
They were spotted by walker Mandy Ewington at Monknash, which was a burial ground for Cistercian monks in the Middle Ages.
Archaeologist Mr Langford said: "You can clearly see a grave has been eroded into the sea. What is fascinating is you can see the two femurs being slowly revealed as the cliffs are eroded away."
"There was a monastic community close to the area and these bones indicate a male in their late 20s who was in good health."
"I would say they belong to a monk from the 1200s, due to previous archaeological digs in the past, the depth of the bones in the cliff and the history of the area."
"He would likely be buried with nothing except two shroud rings which would have held his burial shroud in place at the head and feet."
He said the winter storms had caused large parts of the British coastline to collapse and archaeological sites were being revealed and lost to the sea.
A Nottinghamshire Police spokeswoman said:
We can confirm that we were called to Rampton in the early hours of this morning to the death of a woman.
It's not being treated as suspicious and we are preparing a file for the coroner.
The bloodstained bodies of Theresa Riggi's children were discovered lying side by side in their Edinburgh property following a gas explosion at the building, each with eight stab wounds.
She was moved from the all-female Cornton Vale Prison, near Stirling, after a string of alleged attacks in 2011.
The US-born Riggi was found dead at Rampton Secure Hospital in Nottinghamshire today.
A woman who killed her three children in Edinburgh in 2010 has been found dead at a secure psychiatric hospital in Nottinghamshire, ITV News understands.
Californian Theresa Riggi, now 50, admitted killing her three children Austin, 8, Luke, 8, and Cecilia, 5, on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
Her 2011 trial heard that she suffered from narcissistic, paranoid and hysterical personality disorders.
The leader of the Crimean Tatar community, Refat Chubarov, said the result of Sunday's planned referendum on transferring the Ukrainian region to Russian rule "has already been decided by Moscow."
"There are troops in the streets. There are 30,000 armed men, armoured vehicles, planes landing with foreign troops, and the administrative buildings have all been seized," he told Reuters today. "It's a fake referendum, an attempt to provide cover for this aggression."
Chubarov, who has called for a boycott of the referendum, described newly installed leaders in Crimea as a "puppet government" and appealed to the outside world to help the Tatar community.
"We have neither the weapons nor the strength to stop this injustice on our own," he said.
