Benjamin Netanyahu recalls adventurer John Henry Patterson

The ashes of John Henry Patterson - a soldier, big-game hunter and writer, who died in 1947 - are to be reburied in Israel.

Patterson, who is often remembered as the man who killed two man-eating lions in Tsavo, Kenya, was godfather to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu's older brother Yonathan.

Here, Netanyahu speaks to the BBC's Kevin Connolly about Patterson's life.
