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.

Abubaker Deghayes said he "can't describe his grief" and said he hoped his third son Amer Deghayes, who is also in Syria, will return home safely.
