Six aid workers were ambushed and killed at the weekend in South Sudan. The attack took place Saturday on the road from the capital Juba to Pibor which has seen recent fighting. The aid workers are yet to be identified. The United Nations has described it as the deadliest attack against aid workers on record in the country. Aid workers responding to both famine and cholera in South Sudan have been coming under attack from armed forces. At least 12 have been killed this year alone. 79 others have died since the conflict began in 2013.
