Godspeed Paula Lloyd

Via e-mail from Michael Yon (and on his web page):

Word just came to me that Paula Lloyd died. The word came from a close mutual friend who currently is in Afghanistan. Godspeed to Paula. Those who knew Paula said many great things. I was told she was engaged to be married. Now Paula is with God.

Paula Lloyd, a Human Terrain Team member in Afghanistan, was attacked last November in the southern village of Maywand by a man who doused Lloyd in a flammable liquid and set her on fire.

We join Michael in offering our condolences to Paula's family, friends and co-workers.

Update: More from Noah at Danger Room.
