The family of a Labour candidate for the European parliament who died in a suicide attack in Afghanistan has paid tribute to his dedication to bring peace to troubled parts of the world.

Del Singh, 39, was one of two Britons who were killed in the devastating attacking at a restaurant in Kabul on Friday.

The Taliban attack killed 21 people, including senior UN officials, Afghan dignitaries and restaurant staff.

Mr Singh, from Southampton, was due to stand for the South East in May's European elections.
