Pair missing

The body is the third to be returned.

The corpses of two other men were handed over to the UK in June.

The two other captives – IT consultant Peter Moore and Alan McMenemy – remain missing.

The UK believes that Moore, who was being protected by the security contractors at the time of their capture, is still alive.

Brown called on the hostage-takers to release Moore and confirm the fate of McMenemy.

The Shia fighters were dressed as Iraqi policemen when they seized the group.
