“UK medic killed in Afghan attack”

A British medic who was among 10 aid workers killed by gunmen in an ambush in a remote area of northern Afghanistan has been named by sources as Dr Karen Woo.

The bodies of the Dr Woo, 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.

The family of Dr Woo, from Stevenage, Hertfordshire, were too upset to comment.

Dr Woo was returning to Kabul after working in an eye clinic in the Nuristan province when her convoy was attacked.

She had previously worked for private healthcare firm Bupa before she decided to do aid work in Afghanistan.

General 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 Taliban claimed responsibility for the killings.

The Foreign Office said it was “urgently investigating”.
