US abortion doctor shot at church


A prominent US abortion doctor has been shot dead at a church in Wichita, Kansas.

Sixty-seven year-old George Tiller was killed just after 1500 GMT at the Reformation Lutheran Church.

Dr Tiller, one of the few US doctors who performed late-term abortions, had been demonised by some in the anti-abortion movement.
