Isis in Syria: 'My jihadi son won't come home'

A Belgian father who spent 10 days in Isis-controlled parts of northern Syria searching for his diabetic son has left the country and returned home.

Idriss Boutalliss and another Belgian father managed to meet 19-year-old Abdelmalek close to Raqqa, the jihadi group's headquarters.

The teenager joined Isis militants last month after travelling to Syria with his best friend, 18-year-old Lucas Van Hessche. Both have refused to leave.

Duncan Crawford met Mr Boutalliss close to the Syrian-Turkish border.
