South Sudan: Aid workers say they are increasingly targeted

16 September 2015, 14:10

Juba — Aid workers in South Sudan are being killed, raped and robbed with greater frequency.

Brian McDonald, information manager for the NGO Forum, a consortium of aid groups in South Sudan, said Wednesday that there have been 37 robberies at aid agency compounds in the just last 90 days.

The NGO Forum said in a statement Wednesday that its members are increasingly concerned about the safety of their staff due to the deteriorating security situation.

Last Thursday, robbers shot and killed Rombek Paul Mori of the group Action Against Hunger in a daytime break-in at the agency's compound in the capital, Juba.

Mori is the 30th aid worker killed in South Sudan since fighting broke out in 2013 between government troops and rebel forces.
