Foreign Missions Condemn Attacks On Aid Workers In South Sudan

Foreign missions in South Sudan have condemned the attacks on aid workers in the country by unidentified gunmen.

They said aid workers “need to be able to deliver services without interference and fear of violence. They should never be a target”.

The Heads of Mission of the US, the Netherlands, the UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Canada, Ireland, and the EU issued the joint statement.

The statement comes after the killing of two aid workers in Pibor area. The offices of two non-governmental organisations were also set alight in Renk town.
