UN Condemns `Brutal Murder’ of Four Aid Workers in Afghanistan
By Chris Dolmetsch and Ed Johnson
Aug. 14 (Bloomberg) — The United Nations condemned the “brutal murder” of four international aid workers in Afghanistan yesterday and said relief efforts in the country are becoming harder because of such attacks.
“Nothing can justify such an attack on people whose lives are devoted to helping the people of Afghanistan,” John Holmes, the UN’s humanitarian affairs chief, said in a statement after four members of the International Rescue Committee were killed by gunmen in the country’s northeast.
It was the deadliest single attack against the aid community in Afghanistan this year, taking the total number of workers killed in 2008 to 19, Holmes said. The IRC suspended operations in Afghanistan indefinitely, joining other charitable groups cutting services in war-torn countries.
Three female IRC workers, a British-Canadian, a Canadian and a Trinidadian-American, and their Afghan driver, were traveling from an office in Gardez when they were attacked in the province of Logar, about an hour south of Kabul, said Michael Kocher, vice president of international programs for the New York-based organization.
“They were murdered in broad daylight,” Kocher said in a telephone interview from New York.
`Hail of Bullets’
The IRC workers were unarmed and traveling in clearly marked vehicles when they were ambushed by gunmen who “sprang out” and unleashed a “hail of bullets,” Kocher said. Another Afghan driver was seriously wounded. The names of the victims weren’t released.
An anti-government group called a radio station in Kabul several hours after the attack to claim responsibility, Kocher said. The IRC has 11 international members and 530 local residents working in Afghanistan.
