Prime Minister David Cameron "deeply saddened" by the murder of aid worker Khalil Dale in Pakistan.

Prime Minister David Cameron said:

I was deeply saddened to hear today about the brutal murder of Khalil Dale - a man who was killed whilst providing humanitarian support to others.

This was a shocking and merciless act, carried out by people with no respect for human life and the rule of law.

Khalil Dale has dedicated many years of his life to helping some of the most vulnerable people in the world and my thoughts today are with his friends and family.
