Red Cross doctor from Spain murdered in Afghanistan
A SPANISH doctor working in Afghanistan with the Red Cross has been shot dead whilst on the job, according to the charity and confirmed by the embassy.
Lorena Enebral Pérez, 38, was a physiotherapist caring for patients at a Red Cross centre in Mazar-e-Sharif in the north of the troubled west Asian country, and her charges included men, women and children who had lost arms and legs in the conflict or suffered from disabilities in general.
She is said to have been killed by a male patient aged 22 who has been treated at the centre since the age of three.
Lorena was still alive after being shot at, and was rushed to the Red Cross camp in Marmal, but died soon afterwards, according to the charity's Afghanistan spokesman Ahmad Ramin.
According to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on Twitter, its members are 'deeply shocked and saddened'.
“Lorena was the heart of our team. Today our hearts are broken. Thousands of orthpaedic patients are grieving with us,” the ICRC tweeted.
Ramin stressed that Lorena's murder 'appeared to be an isolated incident' but that the circumstances around the fatal attack were 'not very clear'.
Police chief for the province of Balkh, Abdul Razaq Yaqubi, has identified the killer as Muhamad Naseem, 22, who lives in the nearby and very politically unstable province of Baghlan.
He had been hiding the gun in his wheelchair, but it had only one bullet in it, with which he killed Lorena with a single shot.
He was immediately arrested, along with a second person who had been accompanying him and who, police believed, may have helped him.
Back in February, the ICRC temporarily ceased its activities in Afghanistan after six of its workers were murdered and two others disappeared in the north of the country.
Two months previously, another Spanish aid worker was kidnapped in the northern province of Kunduz and freed four weeks later by the Afghan Special Forces.
