The father of a schoolgirl feared to have joined Islamic State has insisted he is not an extremist after he went to a protest in which an American flag was burned.
Abase Hussen spoke of his regret at joining the demonstration outside the US Embassy in 2012, according to reports.
Michael Adebowale - one of Fusilier Lee Rigby's killers - is also said to have been present at the rally against controversial film Innocence of Muslims.
Images of Mr Hussen at the demonstration emerged after his 15-year-old daughter Amira Abase and two teenage friends went missing from their family homes in east London, prompting an international police hunt.
Mr Hussen told The Times:
He apologised for his involvement and said he disagreed with flag burning, according to the newspaper.
