Tajikistan's Special Forces chief has appeared in a video claiming to have joined Islamic State forces in Syria.

Gulmurod Khalimov is seen in the footage dressed in black and holding a gun.

He went missing in early May.

He says he joined IS in protest at Tajikistan's policy towards religion, which he says is anti-Islamic.

Hundreds of Central Asians are thought have left for Syria, but this is the first known case of such a high profile officer joining the militants.
