Brendan Vaughan is among seven hostages feared dead after they were kidnapped by terrorists in Nigeria

British construction worker Brendan Vaughan is likely to be among seven hostages killed after they were kidnapped by a Nigerian Islamist group, the Foreign Secretary William Hague has confirmed.

Mr Hague described the Briton's death as an "unforgiveable act of pure cold-blooded murder", adding that there was "no excuse or justification" for the hostages' deaths.
