The family and friends of a British aid worker who was murdered in Pakistan have paid tribute to him.
Khalil Dale, from Dumfries, was found dead on Sunday, more than four months after being abducted whilst working for the International Red Cross.
In a statement released today, his brother Ian and fiancee Ann said they are shocked and saddened by the death.
They described the 60-year-old as "amongst the most gentle, most kind and most loving person we have ever known".
