Kadugli — A Sudanese driver for the World Food Programme has been shot dead in war-torn South Kordofan state, the UN agency said on Sunday, in the second attack against it in two days.
Two gunmen opened fire on a U.N. car 80 km (50 miles) north of the state capital Kadugli and killed the driver, a WFP spokeswoman said. A second person in the car was injured, she said, adding details of Saturday's incident were still unclear.
The killing came as officials announced an agreement on aid access to South Kordofan and Blue Nile, where the UN has described a worsening humanitarian crisis but has been severely restricted in its movement.
