Norway condemns killing of UN staff in South Sudan

OSLO, Norway, April 10, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ ? ?Norway condemns the killing of 12 UN employees in South Sudan. Today?s attack is an attack not only on the UN, but also on the population of South Sudan, which the UN is there to assist,? said Minister of Foreign Affairs Espen Barth Eide.

Five Indian UN soldiers and seven civilian employees serving in the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) were killed today in an ambush in Jonglei state, South Sudan. The attack took place in an area that has seen considerable ethnic unrest and violence since South Sudan became independent in July 2011.

?It is vital that the international community and our partners in South Sudan take a united stand against the destructive forces responsible for today?s attack,? Mr Eide said.
