The father of captured British journalist John Cantlie has urged Islamic State militants to return his son to safety. Mr Cantlie has made the appeal from his hospital bed.
"My family and I are trying to communicate with the Islamic State to deliver an important message regarding John, and can only hope that it has been received as we have had no response," Paul Cantlie said in a recorded statement.
A trio of robbers have been jailed after holding a terrified child and his parents hostage in their own home.
Nigel Jarman, 59, of The Square, Birchington was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in jail for his role in the robbery in Faversham earlier this year.
Darren Edwards, 38, of Stratford, London, and Raymond Wallace 40, of Old School Gardens, Margate, were imprisoned for four years and four months, and five years, respectively.
The three men raided an address in Lion Field in May in a case of mistaken identity.
Wallace forced his way into the property where the family were living- once they had shown the offenders their tenancy agreement the robbers left with £70 in cash.
Police tracked down the offenders' getaway car and the trio were arrested a short time later.
