“Briton among Afghan attack dead”

A Briton was among 10 aid workers killed by gunmen in an ambush in a remote area of northern Afghanistan, a charity has said.

The bodies of the Briton, six Americans, a German and two Afghan interpreters were found yesterday next to three bullet-riddled four-wheel drive vehicles in Kuran Wa Munjan district of Badakhshan province.

They had all been shot, police chief General Agha Noor Kemtuz said.

Dirk Frans, director of the International Assistance Mission (IAM), said the eight-member medical team was driving to Kabul from an eye clinic in Nuristan province when they were killed.

The group had decided to head through Badakhshan to return to the capital because they thought that would be the safest route, Mr Frans said.

A statement on the Christian charity’s website said: “This tragedy negatively impacts our ability to continue serving the Afghan people as IAM has been doing since 1966.

“We hope it will not stop our work that benefits over a quarter of a million Afghans each year.”

Gen Kemtuz added that a third Afghan man, who was travelling with the group, survived. Local police said about 10 gunmen robbed the group and killed them one by one.

The Briton killed in Afghanistan was a woman. One of the murdered Americans and the German were also women. The team was made up of doctors, nurses and logistics personnel.
