Dr Khalil Rasjed Dale Found Beheaded In Pakistan

A British doctor kidnapped in Pakistan has been found beheaded, the Red Cross has said.

Khalil Rasjed Dale was managing an International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) health programme in the southwestern city of Quetta when he was seized by gunmen in January.

His body was found dumped on the outskirts of the city, officials at the charity said.

ICRC director-general Yves Daccord said in a statement: "The ICRC condemns in the strongest possible terms this 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."
