After the killing of aid workers.. Guterres sends a request regarding Sudan

The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, called today, Sunday, to "punish those responsible" for the killing of 3 aid workers of the World Food Program in Sudan.

Guterres' Spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said in a statement that the Secretary-General "strongly condemns" the killing of civilians, including the three UN staff, and expressed regret that "the buildings of the United Nations and other humanitarian organizations were damaged by projectiles and looted in several places in Darfur."

The United Nations envoy in Darfur, Volker Perthes, announced earlier today, Sunday, that 3 relief workers affiliated with the World Food Program were killed in the battles that erupted in Sudan since Saturday between the Rapid Support Forces of Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo and the regular army forces.

Perthes said in a statement that they were killed "on Saturday while doing their work in North Darfur," in the west, near Chad, whose borders were closed on Saturday due to violence.
