new arrivals flood into refugee camp: IOM

Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya

A senior United Nations official today expressed shock and anger at the abduction of two female NGO workers and the shooting of their driver at Kenya's Dadaab refugee camp.

António Guterres, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, called the kidnapping "wholly unacceptable."

Mr Guterres also appealed for their immediate return.

The two Médecins Sans Frontières staff were abducted from the camp's Ifo section on Thursday afternoon. Their injured driver, meanwhile, is receiving medical care in Nairobi.

The Dadaab refugee complex, which hosts over 460,000 Somali refugees, is the world's largest refugee camp.
