A British aid worker has been killed in Afghanistan this morning, killed by Taliban militants because they accused her of doing Christian missionary work.
A British female worker from a Christian aid group was shot dead on the street in Kabul this morning by Taleban militants who accused her of missionary work.
The woman, a member of staff with the Christian charity Serve Afghanistan who was named locally as Gayle Williams, was killed at 8am as she walked to work in the west of Kabul by two armed men on a motorcycle.
The British embassy in Kabul confirmed the victim's nationality, after early reports suggested that she was South African. It was the first killing of a Western aid worker in Kabul.
