Killings of humanitarian workers unacceptable: WFPListen /
Over the past year, 12 people have been killed while working for the World Food Programme (WFP) to feed people around the world.
According to WFP Spokesperson Elisabeth Byrs, these staff members, partners or contractors were working in Somalia, Sudan, Haiti, South Sudan and Côte d'Ivoire when they lost their lives.
Most recently, she added, yet another worker was killed at the beginning of August.
"On the 4th of August in South Kordofan, a WFP driver was killed. He had a wife and five children. It's unacceptable that the humanitarian workers should face this kind of physical violence, intimidation and attacks and even death in their daily struggle." (Duration: 21″)
