One of the leading figures of the French resistance against the Nazis, Raymond Aubrac, has died aged 97, his family says. His daughter said he had died at Val de Grace military hospital in Paris on Tuesday evening.

Raymond Aubrac and his late wife Lucie became important members of Jean Moulin's underground Resistance movement in 1942. Aubrac was arrested in June 1943 with Moulin, who died after torture.
