Two Britons killed in RAF Syria strike

Cardiff-born Reyaad Khan, 21, and Ruhul Amin, from Aberdeen, died last month in Raqqa, alongside another fighter, in the first targeted UK drone attack on a British citizen, Mr Cameron told MPs.

Khan – the target – had been plotting “barbaric” attacks on UK soil, he said.

The “act of self defence” was lawful, despite MPs previously ruling out UK military action in Syria, the PM said.
