Gunmen in central Sudan have fired on a United Nations vehicle, killing three Sudanese aid workers and wounding three more. Two of those killed worked for the UN World Food Programme; the third was attached to the International Red Crescent.

The convoy was travelling in Kadugli province in the Nuba mountains area when it was attacked. The aid workers were assessing the need for relief supplies in the region, which was the subject of a long-running blockade by the government until last month.
