Dad reunited with son he thought died in 'Syria attack'

A video posted online appears to show the moment a Syrian father is reunited with his young son who he had feared was killed in last week's alleged chemical attack in Damascus.

ITV News cannot independently verify this video:

The man is overcome with emotion as he is led through a corridor to where his son is waiting for him, where he falls to his knees and weeps as the boy is put in to his arms.

Later in the video the boy and his father sit on a couch and embrace and he tells the boy: ”Don’t cry my son, I am next to you now...thank God, thank God you are alive.”
