The father of a Cardiff man thought to be pictured in a video showing the beheading of Syrian soldiers has denied it is his son.

Ahmed Muthana said 20-year-old Nasser Muthana was not among the 16 jihadists in the Islamic State video.

Mr Muthana, of Butetown, Cardiff, said he had not seen the footage, but was able to confirm it was not his son from images he had seen.
