Kidnapped UK aid worker killed in Pakistan
Text size Aa Aa

The body of a British aid worker kidnapped in Pakistan in January has been found.

Sixty year old Khalil Dale was born in Yemen, but a UK citizen.

He had been missing since being abducted on his way home from work by armed men in Quetta, southwest Pakistan.

Dale’s separated head and body were found wrapped in plastic and labelled by the side of a road in Quetta.

Pathologists determined the aid worker had been killed around 12 hours before his body was discovered.

The identity of his kidnappers remains unknown, but militants are the most likely suspects in a city with Baluch separatists and Taliban members.

Dale had been part of the International Red Cross, who called his killing a “barbaric act”. He had also worked for the organisation in Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq.
