Aid worker killed in Sudan

SudanA Sudanese aid worker was shot dead in front of his family on Monday night in the war-ravaged region of Darfur, according to aid officials.

Mark Simmons, Sudan country director of Fellowship for African Relief, an aid and development agency that focuses on Sudan, said the aid worker may have been killed for refusing to hand over his satellite phone.

The aid worker, which the group identified as Adam Khatir, had been badly beaten on Saturday by four men demanding his phone, and on Monday was shot at his home, in Kongo-Haraza, in West Darfur.
