South Sudan – Murder of two Doctors Without Borders humanitarian workers (August 26, 2015)

France condemns the murder of two Doctors Without Borders employees in South Sudan and extends its condolences to the victims’ families.

Full light must be shed on this heinous crime, the perpetrators of which must be held accountable.

In a context marked by an ever-deteriorating humanitarian situation in the country, it is unacceptable that humanitarian workers continue to be targeted by deliberate attacks and that their work continues to be hampered.

France reaffirms its attachment to the respect for international humanitarian law as well as to the work of humanitarian actors and their protection under all circumstances.
