A British aid worker kidnapped in Afghanistan last month has been killed by her captors during a rescue bid and four NATO soldiers died in an insurgent ambush, the latest deaths in an increasingly bloody conflict.

Linda Norgrove, 36, who worked for a US aid group, had been abducted on September 26 along with three Afghan co-workers. Her death highlights the increasing dangers faced by aid workers in Afghanistan.
