The UN's humanitarian coordinator, Eugene

Owusu confirms that six aid workers were

killed in an ambush in South Sudan on

Saturday, March 25, 2017 as they were

traveling from Juba to Pibor. He said:

"I am appalled and outraged by the

heinous murder yesterday of six

courageous humanitarians in South

Sudan. These attacks against aid workers

and aid assets are utterly reprehensible.

They not only put the lives of aid

workers at risk, they also threaten the

lives of thousands of South Sudanese

who rely on our assistance for their

survival" Owusu said.

He said the ambush comes at a time when

humanitarian needs have reached an

unprecedented level in the troubled country.

12 aid workers have been killed so far this

year in South Sudan and about 5 million

people are suffering from famine in the war-

torn country
