Danny Abdul Dayem who is a British citizen of Syrian descent was shot in Homs 10 days ago.

He and his family fled Syria arriving in the UK last night.

Forces loyal to the Syrian dictator, Bashr al Asad are said to have killed 14 civilians on Wednesday.

As ever, the details are very hard to come by, since foreign observers are banned from the country.

The attack came in Homs, which is Syria's third city and has been under attack for days.
