Archbishop says death of Haines 'act of absolute evil'

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has described the murder of David Haines as an "act of absolute evil".

A video has been released which appears to show the UK hostage's beheading.

The 44-year-old aid worker was seized in Syria in 2013. He was being held by Islamic State militants who have already killed two US captives.
