Khalil Dahle hadde arbeidet i årtier med hjelpearbeid. Nå arbeidet han i Quetta, Pakistan, for Røde Kors.
For tre måneder siden ble han kidnappet. Nylig ble den gjennomhullede kroppen funnet utenfor byen.
Khalil Dale, a 60-year-old Muslim convert, was working for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Quetta, capital of Baluchistan, one of the most troubled of Pakistan’s regions, when he was snatched.
Local officials said his bullet-riddled body was found on a road outside the city in a bag addressed to the police chief. A note said he had been killed because a ransom had not been paid.
Yves Daccord, Director-General of the ICRC, condemned the killing.
“All of us at the ICRC and at the British Red Cross share the grief and outrage of Khalil’s family and friends,” he said.
“We are devastated. Khalil was a trusted and very experienced Red Cross staff member who significantly contributed to the humanitarian cause.”
