Activist who helps people flee Belarus is found 'murdered' in Ukraine as kidnapped Olympic sprinter holes up in Tokyo's Polish embassy amid Lukashenko regime's claims she was working for foreign spies

A Belarusian activist living in Ukraine who helped his fellow countrymen flee the dictatorship of Alexander Lukashenko has been found dead.

Vitaly Shishov, 26, who ran the Belarusian House group in Kiev, was found hanged in a park close to his house today having gone missing while out for a jog on Monday - with friends saying there were signs he had been beaten, including a broken nose.

Police have opened a murder investigation and say they will be looking into the possibility that Shishov was killed and his death made to look like a suicide, after he recently reported being followed by 'strangers' on his runs.
