Terrorists free one OSCE representative

KYIV, April 28 /Ukrinform/. Pro-Russian terrorists have released one of the eight OSCE observers who were captured in Sloviansk, Donetsk region, on Friday, Reuters has reported.

Stella Khorosheva, a spokeswoman for the separatist mayor of Sloviansk, said the observer who left is a Swedish national. "He has a mild form of diabetes and so we decided to let him go," she told reporters.

The man came out, escorted by three unarmed men, got into a white OSCE jeep and drove off. The group declined to answer reporters' questions.
