Al-Qaeda-linked rebels have said sorry for decapitating a fellow extremist by accident.

Militant Islamist rebels in Syria linked to al-Qaeda have asked for “understanding and forgiveness” for cutting off and putting on display the wrong man’s head, The Telegraph has reported.

Knife-wielding members of Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham were shown in a video triumphantly displaying a bearded head before a crowd.
