The family of murdered US journalist Steven Sotloff has paid tribute to their son in a moving statement following his death.
In a statement, a family spokesman said Sotloff "was no war junkie - he did not want to be a modern-day Lawrence of Arabia, he merely wanted to give voice to those that have none".
