A former Royal Marine has become the first British fighter to be killed battling with Kurdish forces against Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants in Syria, the BBC reported on Tuesday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights earlier told AFP a European citizen had been killed fighting with Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), but that it was not clear whether he was British or Greek.

The BBC named the dead man as former marine Konstandinos Erik Scurfield from Yorkshire in northern England. Reports in the Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail said he was 25-years-old.
