BEIRUT: Nearly three weeks after her brother died in a Syrian jail, Sara Khan is now playing the waiting game: waiting for the postmortem results and waiting for answers from the Syrian government. Dr. Abbas Khan, 32 and from London, was found hanging in his jail cell on Dec. 16, in circumstances the British government has labeled "murder". Due to be released only a few days later, Khan's family has ridiculed claims he took his own life, but his sister believes that rogue elements, not Syrian President Bashar Assad, ordered his death.Khan was detained over a year ago in Aleppo, having entered Syria to volunteer in medical centers, but without a visa.For Assad, trying to win friends ahead of Geneva talks later this month, Khan's release would have been a public relations coup, she said.
