Gunmen Killed in 2 aid workers South Sudan
Gunmen in South Sudan have shot dead two aid workers, colleagues said on Wednesday, taking the number killed in over two years of civil war to more than 50.
The pair, South Sudanese nationals who worked for the Danish Demining Group (DDG), making safe landmines and unexploded bombs, were killed in the southern Yei region as they went to work. “The vehicle was ambushed and two of the team members were shot,” DDG said in a statement, calling the killings “tragic.”
“I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the families of our fallen colleagues, and to the entire South Sudan team,” DDG chief Tammy Hall said.
