G7 nations suspend Russia and scrap G8 summit

Leaders of G7 nations suspend Russia's membership of G8 and threaten to intensify sanctions in case of further unrest.

    World leaders meeting at a hastily arranged G7 meeting in The Hague have moved to isolate Russia further over its seizure of Crimea.

    Russia been suspended from the G8, and a summit scheduled to be held in Sochi has been moved to Brussels.

    And the G7 have warned Russia that intervention in southern or eastern Ukraine or violence in Crimea would trigger further sanctions.
