Hague describes failed attempt to rescue Linda Norgrove
British aid worker Linda Norgrove may have been accidentally killed by US forces during a rescue mission in Afghanistan, David Cameron has said.
International forces there originally said the 36-year-old died on Friday when one of her captors detonated a suicide vest.
But the prime minister said new details had come to light suggesting her death may have resulted from a US grenade.
Foreign Secretary William Hague issued the following statement on the failed rescue attempt to the House of Commons.
