Captive Brits and Moroccan may be executed by a firing squad: Report

Two Brits and one Moroccan who were sentenced to death by pro-Russian separatists may be executed by a firing squad “not publicly,” a rebel leader has said according to Russia’s Interfax news agency.

UK nationals Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner, and Moroccan Brahim Saadoun, fought for the Ukrainian military and were captured by pro-Russian separatists.

In early June, they were sentenced to death for allegedly “attempting to seize power” and “training in order to conduct terrorist activity.” They appealed their sentences.

Denis Pushilin, who heads the Moscow-backed “People’s Republic of Donetsk” in southeastern Ukraine was quoted by Interfax as saying that “if the appeals court rules that their earlier sentences are legal, they will be [executed] by a firing squad not publicly.”
