The archaeologist who looked after ancient ruins of Palmyra in Syria for 40 years is reported to have been killed by Islamic State (IS) militants.

Khaled al-Asaad had been held for about a month by the group, which seized the Unesco World Heritage site in May.

The 81-year-old’s family informed Syria’s director of antiquities Maamoun Abdul Karim that he had been beheaded.
