Indian forces rescue humanitarian workers in Sudan

The Indian peacekeeping forces serving in Pibor, have rescued more than a dozen humanitarian workers who came under heavy fire from unknown gunmen. They were alerted about the gunmen in the early hours of Thursday.

“When they arrived at the compound, about three kilometers from the UN base, there was a flurry of about 150 shots fired by the attackers using automatic weapons,” said the mission in a statement issued in Juba.

The report, published by the UN Mission in South Sudan, said that the peacekeepers responded by firing warning shots into the air which caused the attackers too flee, with nearly forty people involved in the incident.
