Horrible. British Aid worker may have been killed by a grenade thrown by a US soldier.

British aid worker Linda Norgrove may have been accidentally killed by US forces during a rescue mission in Afghanistan, David Cameron has said.

International forces there originally said the 36-year-old died on Friday when one of her captors detonated a suicide vest.

But at the start of a press conference in Downing Street, Mr Cameron said it had since emerged that she may have died as a result of a US grenade being detonated during the rescue.

Mr Cameron said the manner of her death had not been confirmed and everything was now being done to do establish certainty about the circumstances.

He said US military commanders had expressed their “deep regrets” about the possibility that she may have died in this way.
