An inquest is due to be opened into the death of a British doctor who was found dead in his cell in Syria earlier this month.
Dr Abbas Khan was on the verge of being released when he was found dead in his cell, with the Syrian regime claiming he took his own life and his family alleging he was murdered.
The inquest into his death will formally open at 11am this morning at Walthamstow Coroner's court.
The 32-year-old orthopaedic surgeon from London was captured in November last year in the ancient city of Aleppo after travelling from Turkey to help victims of the conflict.
