Father's grief as second son dies in Syria

A teenager from Brighton whose brother died fighting in Syria earlier this year has also been killed in the war-torn country, his father has said.

Jaffar Deghayes, 17, is believed to have died at the weekend after leaving home for Syria in a bid to overthrow Bashar Al-Assad's government.

His brother, Abdullah, 18, died in Latakia province in April after leaving the UK in January.

Their father, Abubaker, said he was told of Jaffar's death on Monday.
