Three Sudanese aid workers with the Sudanese Red Crescent were killed in the war-torn Blue Nile state on Sunday. It is at the time of the publishing of this article still unclear who is responsible for the attack. The UNRHC in Sudan has strongly condemned the killing of the aid workers.

      while returning from the town of Kurmuk after finishing a task related to the distribution of humanitarian aid in the region," Ahmed Mohamed Adam, head of the Sudanese Humanitarian Affairs Commission, said in a statement. He did not say how they were killed but alluded to armed movements in the region in an apparent reference to the rebels there. The town of Kurmuk lies south of Ed Damazin, on Sudan's southeastern border with Ethiopia.

      "The commission condemns targeting the aid workers and calls on the armed movements to respect international humanitarian law and the principle of the protection of aid workers," Adam added.

      The Sudanese military could not be reached for comment by AFP and the rebels from the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) who operate in the region said they did not have any information on the incident. The SPLM-N is active in South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

      The Sudanese government has limited the activities of international relief organisations in areas controlled by the SPLM-N in Blue Nile and South Kordofan states since the insurgency erupted in 2011.


      The United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator a.i. in Sudan, Adnan Khan, strongly condemned the attack. He added that the staff were part of a team monitoring the distribution of food assistance provided by the UN in Kurmuk locality, in a press release issued today.

      “My deepest condolences go to the family and friends of those killed,” said Khan. “I wish quick recovery for the injured staff member of SRCS.

      “Attacks on clearly marked humanitarian aid vehicles jeopardise the delivery of relief assistance and constitute a violation of the International Humanitarian Law,” Khan concluded.

      The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world's largest humanitarian network.
