Former US defence chief 'appalled' by Trump's Khan comments

Former US Defense Secretary William Cohen, a Republican, has said he is "appalled" by Donald Trump's comments regarding Khizr and Ghazala Khan, parents of a Muslim US soldier killed in Iraq.

Cohen, now a BBC world affairs analyst, cited the row as just one reason why he would find difficulty in supporting Donald Trump as a potential commander-in-chief.
