Friend of British jihadist Ibrahim Kamara tells of fight

A British jihadist who knew Ibrahim Kamara, the 19 year-old from Brighton believed to have been killed in a US airstrike in Aleppo earlier this week, has been speaking about their time in Syria.

Kamara, who called himself Khalil al-Britani and was fighting for an affiliate group of al-Qaeda, is thought to have been killed along with three other British nationals.

Amer Deghayes was one of several friends who travelled with Kamara to Syria in February.

He spoke to Newsnight's Secunder Kermani.
