The Daily Telegraph said:
‘The Foreign Office has not confirmed the identity of the man, but the name on the passport seized by regime forces and shown on state television is that of 22-year-old Ali Al-Manasfi from London.
The Al-Manasfi family from Acton, west London, on Friday said they were waiting for confirmation from the Foreign Office but feared it was him.
A family spokesman told the Telegraph: “We are sitting tight to hear but it looks like it could be him.”
They said he had been in Syria for four months, but had “disappeared” a few weeks ago.”
Also suspected to be dead was an American woman who had converted to Islam and gone to Syria to fight the Assad government.
