London, April 29 (IANS) The decapitated and bullet-riddled body of a 60-year-old Briton working for the International Committee of the Red Cross, has been found in Pakistan's Quetta city, three months after he was kidnapped.


Khalil Dale, a Muslim convert, was working for the ICRC in Quetta when he was abducted, the Telegraph reported Sunday.


Pakistani officials said the body was found on a road outside the city in a bag addressed to the police chief.


A note said he had been killed because a ransom was not paid.


ICRC Director-General Yves Daccord has condemned the killing.


"All of us at the ICRC and at the British Red Cross share the grief and outrage of Khalil's family and friends. We are devastated. Khalil was a trusted and very experienced Red Cross staff member who significantly contributed to the humanitarian cause," he said.


Dale, from Manchester, converted to Islam 30 years ago. He had worked for the Red Cross in Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq.


In Pakistan, he had been working as a health programme manager for almost a year. He was abducted by eight unidentified armed men while returning home from work Jan 5.
