Saviour of 2,000 Afghans who saved a baby's life executed by the Taliban
Dr Karen Woo was with nine others in the Kuran Wa Munja district of Badakhshan when they were killed.

A British doctor shot dead by the Taliban was part of a humanitarian mission that had helped 2,000 Afghans, an inquest heard yesterday.

Dr Karen Woo was executed alongside nine other aid workers after they tried to cross a mountain river in August last year. The 36-year-old, who was due to get married a fortnight later, suffered 'catastrophic' injuries from two gunshot wounds in the attack.
