The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is checking reports that a British man has been killed in Syria.
It is expected to take some time to verify the report as the UK has no diplomatic presence in Syria.
It is having to rely on other EU countries which do have an embassy there. Hungary is understood to be one of the countries it may ask for help.
Our governments have warned that our citizens are being radicalized over in Syria, now they are surprised they are being killed whilst fighting for rebel or terrorist groups?
