U.S. Diplomat Summoned Over Jailed Russian Smuggler

Russia has summoned a U.S. diplomat to demand diplomatic and medical access to a Russian drug smuggler who is imprisoned in the United States.

Moscow alleges that Konstantin Yaroshenko, a pilot who is serving 20 years for conspiracy to smuggle cocaine into the United States, was tortured when he was arrested in 2010.

Yaroshenko’s lawyer Aleksei Tarasov says his health has been worsening in prison -- prompting Russia’s Foreign Ministry to call for a Russian doctor to be allowed to examine him.

Tarasov claims that Yaroshenko experienced symptoms of a heart attack in prison but was not being helped.

Tarasov has suggested that Yaroshenko could die within days.
