GENEVA: The International Committee of the Red Cross said Wednesday that one of its aid workers, a Swiss citizen, had been killed in the Libyan city of Sirte.

"He was attacked by gunmen as he left a meeting with two colleagues. He died in Sirte's hospital. His colleagues are unhurt but in shock," ICRC spokesman Wolde Saugeron told AFP.
