An Azerbaijani seafarer has died of a heart attack while being held in detention in Libya.
The man was working on a Turkish controlled bunker tanker, Captain Khayyam, which was detained off the Libyan coast last month, having been charged with illegally taking fuel from the country.
After significant diplomatic wrangling the corpse of the deceased has now been returned to Azerbaijan via Turkey.
The other crewmembers, a mix of Azerbaijanis, Turks and Ukrainians, are set to face trial on April 11. Their current jail conditions are described as squalid.
