Jon Holmes confronts Russian correspondent over Ministry of Defence video game picture

Our host asked key questions about the Russian Ministry of Defence using a video game picture as 'proof' the US was helping Isis

Jon Holmes asked difficult questions of a Russian correspondent over a gaffe made by the Defence Ministry.

The Russian organisation posted what they claimed was photographic evidence the United States was helping Islamic State.

The image purportedly showed a convoy leaving a town in Syria aided by US forces. 

But the internet was quick to spot a rather embarrassing gaffe - the image they used turned out to be from a video game called AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron.

Our host, upon speaking to a Russian correspondent, grilled her over this.
