American Aid Worker Cyd Mizell & Driver Reportedly Murdered in Afghanistan

From Vicki no-veil

Cyd Mizell, an American aid worker helping Afghan women achieve economic self-sufficiency, has apparently been killed by her captors, along with her driver, Abdul Hadi. The pair were abducted January 26 in Khandahar. Via MSNBC:

KABUL, Afghanistan - An American aid worker and her Afghan driver kidnapped in southern Afghanistan a month ago are feared dead, a statement from their aid group said. Afghan and U.S. officials said Wednesday they could not confirm the report.

Cyd Mizell, 50, and driver Abdul Hadi were kidnapped in a residential neighborhood of Kandahar on Jan. 26. Mizell worked on aid projects for the Asian Rural Life Development Foundation, or ARLDF.

“Although we have no confirmation of their deaths, we have received information over the past few days indicating that our two aid workers have been killed,” said a statement posted on the group’s Web site Tuesday.

The ARLDF said it is working with the Red Cross to recover the bodies.

Our thoughts and prayers go to the families and friends of Cyd Mizell and Abdul Hadi.
Ruthless bast**ds that did this are a bunch of weak pussies.

This is so very sad. She went there to try and help these women learn to have a small business off of their embroidered crafts and was murdered in cold blood for her kindness. Cyd, I will pray for you, your family and the women you were trying to help. I will pray for Abdul and his loved ones as well.
