Wife urges UAE to free husband held since May

A British student has been detained for the last five months in the United Arab Emirates "without explanation" after a research trip, his wife has said.
Matthew Hedges, a PhD student at Durham University, has been held in solitary confinement after being accused of spying, according to the Times.
His wife said his rights were being "violated on a daily basis".
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said he had raised "a number of concerns" about the case with his UAE counterpart.
The Times reported that the 31-year-old was arrested on 5 May at Dubai airport as he tried to leave following a research trip to interview sources about the country's security policies.
Mr Hedges's case was heard by a court in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday, but was adjourned until another hearing on 24 October.
