The Daily Mirror reports that a Syrian jihadi fighter has warned that the Islamic State militant group will behead more westerners in revenge for US air strikes in Iraq yesterday. | The Times reports that three Afghan agents who claim to have spied on the Taliban for the British military are suing the government for allegedly abandoning them to be killed by the insurgent group. | Various papers report that two men have died after their private helicopter crashed into cliffs and dropped into the sea off the Yorkshire coast and that an RAF helicopter was deployed to help with the rescue effort.
The Daily Express reports that the European Court of Human Rights ruled that there was no violation by MOD in a case brought against the Department by the brother of deceased Iraqi Tarek Hassan.
Responding to the ruling, the Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said: "I am pleased that the judgement found that British soldiers did not break the law or breach any human rights of Tarek Hassan. The soldiers involved acted bravely and professionally.
"There are too many opportunistic allegations like this, both in the UK courts and at Strasbourg; the Court has now sent a strong signal that unreasonable claims will not succeed.
"We will examine the implications of the unwelcome finding that the European Convention applied during the war-fighting phase of the campaign."
