SPY NOOR HON­OURED

First News - - QUICK NEWS -

A spe­cial blue plaque has been placed on a house in Lon­don to hon­our the brave World War 2 spy who once lived there. Noor Inayat Khan, a Mus­lim of In­dian and Amer­i­can her­itage, worked un­der­cover as a ra­dio op­er­a­tor in Nazioc­cu­pied France in the 1940s. She was cap­tured and died in a con­cen­tra­tion camp, but never re­vealed any of her se­crets. Noor is the first woman of In­dian ori­gin to be hon­oured with one of the plaques, which mark a link be­tween a no­table per­son and a par­tic­u­lar build­ing.
