Statement by the U.S. Embassy in South Sudan – Attacks Affecting Humanitarian Workers and Civilians in South Sudan

The U.S. Embassy condemns in the strongest terms the recent targeted attacks on humanitarian workers and their compounds in South Sudan, including those that have led to the deaths of three South Sudanese humanitarian workers and injury to others.  We renew our call for South Sudan’s leaders to act with urgency to end subnational violence and to hold accountable those responsible for attacks targeting civilians and humanitarian organizations, as well as for abductions and other human rights violations.  We stand with all those who work for peace and stability in South Sudan.
