'Superhuman efforts' to help free son

The family of a doctor from London who died in a Syrian prison made "superhuman efforts" to get him freed, an inquest jury has been told.

Dr Abbas Khan, 32 and from Streatham, was helping victims of hospital bombings.

His family believe he was murdered but the Syrian government said he killed himself.
