Liberian Authorities Find Remains Of Missing Norwegian Aid Worker

The body of a 53-year-old Norwegian aid worker who had been missing for more than a week was found near his burned out truck in Liberia’s rebellion-torn eastern borderlands, officials said Monday. Liberian authorities found the remains of Kaar Lund, an official with the Adventist Development and Relief Agency, on Friday, Defense Minister Daniel Chea said. Officials for the international relief group’s Oslo-based Norway branch confirmed Lund’s death. Lund and two Liberian colleagues were last seen Feb. 28 as they drove through a military checkpoint toward a refugee camp in Toe Town that was then under siege by unidentified attackers. Their scorched four-wheel drive truck, surrounded by bodies, was discovered days later as government troops retook the town, 250 miles southwest of the capital, Monrovia. Lund’s remains were discovered not far from the wreckage, near the country’s border with Ivory Coast. His two colleagues were confirmed killed last week. Lund, of Rakkestad, Norway, also had been a relief worker in Pakistan. He is survived by his wife and three adult children. Full Story
