Statement on Attacks on Aid Workers in the Greater Pibor Administrative Area and in Warrap State, South Sudan


The U.S. Embassy joins the UN Acting Humanitarian Coordinator in strongly condemning the brutal killing of a South Sudanese aid worker in the Greater Pibor Administrative Area on November 6.  We also strongly condemn the November 11 attack in Warrap State in which a humanitarian worker was killed.  It is the responsibility of South Sudan’s transitional government to establish conditions that ensure the safe provision of humanitarian assistance.  We offer our condolences to the families of both victims.
