A married couple have been jailed for 10 years after kidnapping a five-year-old British boy.

Sahil Saeed, of Oldham, was snatched at gunpoint in Pakistan in March 2010.

The court heard that Muhammed Zahid Saleem, 36, and his wife Monica Neruja, 26, had made threatening calls to Sahil's family and travelled to Paris to collect the £110,000 ransom from one of his uncles.

Sahil – now seven – spent 13 days in captivity after being abducted.
