Hague: UK to help 'bring killers of hostages to justice'


Sadly we believe British hostage Brendan Vaughan has been killed by his terrorist captors in Nigeria, in an act of cold-blooded murder


My thoughts are with Brendan Vaughan's family and friends, as they come to terms with this tragedy


We will work with Nigeria and other affected countries to bring his killers to justice and tackle terrorism in the region


Family 'shock' at hostage death

Relatives of Brendan Vaughan, the British man killed by terrorists in Nigeria, have said they are shocked by his death. Vaughan was one of seven foreign nationals killed in what Foreign Secretary William Hague has called "cold-blooded murder".
