An British engineering student who travelled to join Isis militants in Syria has said that he is ready to fight to the death.
Abdul Raqib Amin, believed to be in his 20s, admitted to missing his parents in an interview with Good Morning Britain, but said that there was no turning back.
I'm going to stay and fight until the Khilafah (rule of Islam) is established or I die.
Raqib has been identified as one of the British militants in a recruitment video for Isis, alongside fellow British jihadists Nasser Muthana and Reyaad Khan. In it, he said that he had suffered from depression while living in the West, before adding: "The cure for the depression is jihad.”
But a former schoolfriend has said that he believed that Raqib had been "brainwashed" by Islamic extremists.
