A Syrian priest who was held by Islamic State (IS) militants for nearly three months and threatened with execution has for the first time spoken about his ordeal.

Fr Jack Murad was abducted from the central Syrian town of al-Qaryatain in May, along with Botros Hanna, a volunteer at the ancient Mar [Saint] Elian Monastery.

Fr Jack told BBC Arabic what happened.
