A Briton kidnapped in Africa has been beheaded by Al Qaeda terrorists demanding the release of radical cleric Abu Qatada from a London jail. The terror group's North African section said on its website that it had killed Edwin Dyer, adding that disbelievers would be 'smitten in the neck'. Gordon Brown said the Government had 'strong reason to believe' the claim.

The statement said terrorists 'killed Dyer on May 31, finding that Britain is unresponsive and does not seem to care for its citizens'. It added: 'The British captive was killed so that he, and with him the British state, may taste a portion of what innocent Muslims taste every day at the hands of the Crusader and Jewish coalition to the east and to the west.'

The kidnappers blamed the British government for Mr Dyer's death, claiming that ministers had failed to negotiate a deal.

Al Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQIM), the North African branch of the group, had threatened to kill Mr Dyer if extremist cleric Abu Qatada was not released from a British high-security prison.

The Briton, who spoke fluent German and had been working in Austria, was kidnapped in Niger along with three other Europeans after visiting an African festival in January.
