British Muslim Beheaded by Pakistani Taliban (Update BLF Faction)


The beheaded corpse of a British aid worker has been discovered in the Pakistani city of Quetta, almost four months after he was kidnapped.

The body of Khalil Rasjed Dale was discovered on a road outside the city, in southern Baluchistan province, with a note saying he had been killed because a ransom had not been paid.

Dale, who had been working for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), was kidnapped in January while driving near the organisation's Quetta office.

"We are devastated," said ICRC director general Yves Daccord. ''Khalil was a trusted and very experienced Red Cross staff member who significantly contributed to the humanitarian cause."

"All of us at the ICRC and at the British Red Cross share the grief and outrage of Khalil's family and friends."

The 60-year-old Muslim convert was a longstanding ICRC and British Red Cross worker. He had been managing an ICRC health programme in Quetta for almost a year.


Update: The Taliban spokesman want us to make clear this was not the Taliban so much as the Baloch Liberation Army. Which is a distinct group of Not Taliban Taliban that operates in Southwestern Pakistan and Afghanistan.
