The family of a 32-year-old south London doctor who died in a Syrian prison has welcomed a jury's finding that he was unlawfully killed.
Abbas Khan was captured in Aleppo in November 2012 after travelling from Turkey and died in December last year.
Following a two-week trial at the Royal Courts of Justice, the jury found there was no evidence that he had gone to Syria to fight.
Outside court, Dr Khan's brother, Afroze Khan, said: "We have always maintained that our brother was an innocent man who travelled to Syria for no other reason than helping injured civilians in the conflict. We have always maintained that he was mistreated, maltreated and tortured by the Syrian authorities and that he was murdered by the Syrians.
"Today, our position as a family has been vindicated completely. All the allegations against my brother - that he had gone for any other reason - have been disproved today."
