United Nations aid workers missing in South Sudan

United Nations aid workers missing in South Sudan

26 de abril de 2018, 13:53Juba, April 26 (Prensa Latina) UN Humanitarian Coordinator for South Sudan, Alain Noudehou, confirmed Thursday 10 activitists disappeared in Yei city (south) under unclear circumstances.

Edmund Yakani, executive director of the humanitarian group Community Empowerment for Progress Organization, in Juba, said it has seen a rise in attacks on South Sudanese aid workers since mid-March.

Mr Noudehou, who condemned the kidnapping of the aid workers, urged the parties to the South Sudan conflict to observe global humanitarian law. Machar briefly returned as Kiir's deputy in mid-2016 under a short-lived peace deal, before being forced to flee the country amid renewed violence.

"We are deeply concerned about the whereabouts of these humanitarian workers and are urgently seeking information about their well-being", Noudehou said.

Earlier this week, worldwide media came up with reports that Nepali Army soldiers serving in the United Nations mission in South Sudan allegedly raped two teenage girls.

"We are relying on you, Mr President, and your colleagues in IGAD to help", Mahamat said, according to a statement from Kenyatta's office issued after the meeting.

Noudehou also called on "all parties to the conflict" in South Sudan to provide a safe environment within which aid can be delivered.

I neither deny nor accept who are the responsible of this, we are investigating because it is our territory, but we must not dismiss the presence of other armed forces, Paul Gabriel remarked.

In its statement, OCHA said this was, "the second incident involving aid workers being held by armed groups in April alone, and the third in six months".

"So until we get that report from the ground commander, we will not be able to confirm".
