BBC Statement regarding death of Ahmed Omed Khpulwak

Following the death of BBC stringer, Ahmed Omed Khpulwak, in southern Afghanistan's Urozgan province last week various conflicting reports have emerged regarding the facts surrounding his death.

The BBC has officially requested that International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) inquires into the circumstances of his death and reports the findings to the BBC and to his family as urgently as possible.

Ahmed Omed was killed on Thursday 28 July 2011. He was 25 and joined the BBC on 1 May 2008, as a stringer. He was also working for Pajwak Afghan news agency.

Our thoughts remain with Ahmed Omed's friends and family at this difficult time.
