Red Cross worker killed in Pakistan

THE body of a British Red Cross worker held captive in Pakistan since January has been found in an orchard, his throat slit and a note attached to his body saying he was killed because no ransom was paid, police say.

Khalil Rasjed Dale, 60, was managing a health program in the city of Quetta in southwestern Pakistan when armed men seized him from a street close to his office.

The identities of his captors are unknown, but the region is home to separatist and Islamist militants who have kidnapped for ransom before.

The director-general of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) condemned the "barbaric act".

"All of us at the ICRC and at the British Red Cross share the grief and outrage of Khalil's family and friends," Yves Daccord said on Sunday.
