Sudan Clashes: Clashes continue between the army and paramilitary forces in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan. In the ongoing conflict, 75 people including one Indian have died. Hundreds of people are injured there. Three employees of the United Nations Food Agency are also included in the dead. Angered by this, the Food Agency has stopped work in Sudan.
Expressing grief over the incident, Cindy McCain, Executive Director of the World Food Program, said that I am shocked and heartbroken by the tragic death of three WFP employees in violence in Kabkabia, North Darfur on Saturday (April 15). He told that these employees were helping the people who are facing crisis, so their death is very sad.
We are at risk, how do we work – WHO
He further said that we have reviewed the situation and found that the atmosphere is not workable right now. In such a situation, we are forced to temporarily stop all work in Sudan. WFP is committed to helping the Sudanese people facing dire food insecurity, but we cannot do our life-saving work if the safety of our teams is not guaranteed. All parties should come to an agreement, once peace is established then we will continue to serve the people of Sudan. They are our top priority.
