In one incident in the Zalinge area of West Darfur, a mob beat three water workers to death, forcing international organizations to suspend activities in camps for the internally displaced. There has also been an increase in ambushes and hijackings of vehicles belonging to non-governmental organizations (NGOs). These include vehicles stolen during food distributions, theft from NGO compounds and even an attack on an ambulance.” [More]
