22 December 2013 Last updated at 16:21 GMT

The family of UK doctor Abbas Khan have arrived back in London after travelling to Lebanon to collect his body.

The 32-year-old surgeon was found dead in his cell just days before the Syrian government had said he would be freed.

Mr Khan's remains will be taken from Heathrow to the coroner's office in east London where a post mortem examination will be conducted.

His sister, Sara Khan, has called on the government to help get "as many answers as possible" about her brother's death.
