British aid worker killed during rescue

A British aid worker may have been killed by a U.S. grenade Friday during a rescue attempt.

An investigation is under way to understand how Linda Norgrove, who was kidnapped two weeks ago in Kunar, was killed.

According to the New York Times NATO first reported that Norgrove was killed by her captors Friday night, but on Monday British prime minister David Cameron told reporters that a grenade from her rescuers may have been the culprit.

Cameron announced a British coroner will examine Norgrove's body, but said that the investigation should be a joint effort between the U.S. and the U.K., the BBC reported.
