Muhammad Hamidur Rahman

THIS is one of the last pictures taken of a former Primark worker who left Portsmouth to fight in the Middle East.

Muhammad Hamidur Rahman, who was 25, is reported to have died after a gun battle.

He left home to fight with what was called the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS) in Syria last October.

The group, now referred to as the Islamic State, has been linked to al-Qaeda.

The group has now taken control of parts of Iraq, as well as the troubled Syria.

He was one of a number of young men from the city who left their families in Portsmouth to join the fight against the Bashar al-Assad regime.
