Post mortem held on Syria doctor
A post-mortem has been carried out on a British doctor who died while being held in custody in Syria.
The examination was conducted by Dr Nat Cary, one of the UK's leading forensic pathologists, at Queen's Hospital in Romford, a family statement said.
Assistance was provided by Scotland Yard's counter-terrorism command to enable the post-mortem to be conducted "as effectively as possible", the statement said.
"The coroner, with the family's consent, agreed upon this sensible course of action," it added.
It is not expected that the findings will be made public until they have been considered by the coroner.
Dr Khan was on the verge of being released when his family were told of his death last week.
His relatives have said he was the victim of a political murder, but the Syrian government said he committed suicide.
