• Father of British hostage Cantlie dies


    LONDON: The father of British photojournalist John Cantlie has died, a fortnight after making a impassioned appeal to Islamic State (IS) militants to release his son, the family said on Wednesday. Paul Cantlie died on Thursday aged 80 from “complications following pneumonia”, the family said in a statement. A retired naval architect, Paul had earlier this month recorded a video plea from his hospital bed for IS to release his son.
