Norgrove parents shown "harrowing" video

The parents of Scottish aid worker Linda Norgrove have been shown a video of the military rescue in which she was killed.

In an interview with the BBC, John Norgrove spoke of the "harrowing" video and said "It was a difficult thing to go through but I feel at the end of it we got a really good picture of what happened."

Linda Norgrove was taken hostage in Afghanistan in September and died during her rescue attempt in October. A joint UK and US investigation found that she was killed by a grenade thrown by one of the American special forces.
