Iraq victim Alec MacLachlan 'second-class' hostage claim

The mother of a man kidnapped and then killed by Iraqi militants in 2007 said she agreed the Foreign Office treated him like a second-class citizen.

Alec MacLachlan from Llanelli was one of five men captured in Baghdad, of whom four were killed.

The kidnappers' leader has apologised, but blamed the UK government for not doing enough to intervene.

The Foreign Office said responsibility lay "entirely with those who kidnapped and murdered" the four men.
