A Thoughtful, Analytical Approach to NGO Security

Two aid workers killed in bus attack

On 21 February 2009, two Sudanese members of Aide Médicale Internationale (AMI) were killed by camel riding gunmen near Nyala, in Darfur, Sudan.

A dozen gunmen had forced a cargo truck and the passenger bus on which the AMI staff were riding to stop at the roadside in an apparent act of banditry. The gunmen then opened fire killing the two AMI staff members and wounding four other bus passengers. A third member of the AMI escaped unharmed.

The victims included a nurse practitioner and a health educator.

AMI has taken the decision to suspend programming the area to honour the memory of their slain colleagues.
