Tortured by Syrian extremists 'who received UK aid'

The extremist Syrian group Nour al-Din al-Zinki took funds through a UK-backed foreign aid project, a BBC Panorama investigation has found.

Taxpayers' money was diverted to Zinki via the Free Syrian Police scheme.

The government has suspended funding while it investigates the allegations.

UK users can watch the full BBC Panorama investigation on BBC iPlayer.
