    0

    DAMASCUS: Syria said on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) that a British doctor alleged to have been effectively murdered in custody had hanged himself after being arrested for “unauthorized activities.” The death of Dr. Abbas Khan just days before he was to be handed over to a British lawmaker sparked a diplomatic row with London, which accused President Bashar al-Assad’s regime of effectively murdering the 32-year-old orthopedic surgeon. Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Meqdad had said on Tuesday that Khan hanged himself with his pyjamas.
