ICRC Suspends Aid Work in Pakistan

Latest Pakistan News > Islamabad News – The Red Cross on Thursday suspended most of its aid projects in Pakistan and recalled all of its foreign staff to the capital, following the brutal murder of a British worker.

 ICRC Suspends Aid Work

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it had put on hold activities run from the southern port city of Karachi and the northwestern city of Peshawar, while it reviewed its operations after the killing of Khalil Dale.

 

The move suspends activities at all facilities run by ICRC apart from a physical rehabilitation centre in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

 

“The recent attack against the ICRC compels us to completely reassess the balance between the humanitarian impact of our activities and the risks faced

by our staff,” said Jacques de Maio, ICRC’s head of operations for South Asia.

 

The 60-year-old Dale’s mutilated body was found outside Quetta, the capital of the insurgency-plagued southwest province of Baluchistan, on April 29, four months after he was abducted.

 

ICRC activities in Quetta were frozen in the aftermath of Dale’s death, the aid group said.
