Briton arrested in Central African Republic after 18-dead-bodies 'massacre' find
Man jailed after discovering African 'massacre' (BBC News)
The family of a North Yorkshire man imprisoned without charge in Africa after discovering a suspected massacre are campaigning for his release.
David Simpson, 24, from Pickering, was working in the Central African Republic as a safari guide when he says he came across 18 mutilated bodies.
He reported it to the authorities but was later arrested along with his boss and both have been in jail for a month.
The family said Mr Simpson had said it was believed the suspected massacre had been carried out by the rebel group the Lord's Resistance Army.
