Sudanese relief worker for Canadian NGO shot dead

Latest update : 2009-04-01

A Sudanese aid worker for the Canadian charity the Fellowship for African Relief was shot dead by gunmen demanding a satellite phone. Earlier this month, Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir gave NGOs a year to clear out.

AFP - A Sudanese man working for a Canadian aid group has been shot dead in the war-ravaged region of Darfur, an official from the Fellowship for African Relief told AFP on Tuesday.
  
"He was ambushed on Saturday by men who wanted his Thuraya satellite telephone," said FAR country director Mark Simmons.
  
"They came to his home on Monday evening to take the phone, but it wasn't there. The armed men then opened fire on him."
  
Simmons said the attack took place in west Darfur, near the border with Chad.
  
"We've been in Sudan for 24 years and this is the first time that one of our workers is killed," he said.
