Updated Trends: Linda Norgrove Possibly Killed By Friendly Fire, Says British PM David Cameron
The mystery surrounding the death of British aid worker Linda Norgrove seems to have been attributed to “friendly fire”. British Prime Minister David Cameron has said that it is possible that Linda was killed accidentally and not by her captors. He also said that a thorough investigation regarding the matter has been launched and the facts behind the death will soon be revealed.
Earlier, sources claimed that she had been killed by her captors in Afghanistan as they sensed the closeness of the US rescue team. Norgrove, 36, a British aid worker, was a captive of the Taliban in Afghanistan and reports say that her death was possibly caused by a grenade thrown by the US troops to rescue her.
Linda’s parents, John and Lorna Norgrove are demanding a clear explanation regarding their daughter’s death and feel that some negotiations would have definitely helped their daughter to get rescued from Afghanistan.
Cameron said, “We must get to the bottom of what happened, first of all so the family gets this information and knows exactly how their wonderful daughter died.”
The PM has assured the Norgroves that complete facts and figures would be made available regarding the death of Linda as soon as the investigations are completed.
