UN agency deplores killing of staffer in Sudan's South Kordofan state
5 August 2012 – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) on Sunday condemned the killing of one its drivers in a fatal attack in the Sudanese state of South Kordofan, where ongoing conflict continues to hinder efforts to deliver vital humanitarian aid.
Jamal Al Fadil Farag Allah, a 56-year-old Sudanese national, was killed in an armed attack on Saturday near Hilat Yatu, some 80 kilometres north of Kadugli, the capital of South Kordofan state, according to a news release issued by the Rome-based agency.
Jamal, who worked with WFP since 2005, leaves behind a wife and five children. He was driving fellow staff member Saad Yousif when their vehicle was attacked by two unknown assailants. Saad survived and is currently receiving medical attention. (...)
