Canada helping battle famine in South Sudan, ready to do more: Trudeau

The UN official urged the Juba government to abide by the commitments made by President Salva Kiir on March 25, when he committed to declare a unilateral ceasefire and work for political participation to end the conflict.

The government's registrar of NGOs, Deng Tong Kenjok, announced that the new directive would increase fees from $600 to $3,500 for global agencies and from $450 to $500 for local organizations, Reuters reported Thursday.

The head of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in southern Sudan, David Shearer, has strongly condemned an attack on its base in the country where civil war has broken out.Shearar said Friday the attack ignored the lives of civilians as "well as the lives of humanitarian workers".


The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said Sunday it has deployed peacekeeping troops to Aburoc in the Upper Nile region to help enable the delivery of much needed humanitarian assistance. More than 3 million people have fled their homes, creating Africa's biggest refugee crisis since the Rwandan genocide in 1994.

The United States has accused South Sudanese President Salva Kiir of contributing to the starvation, and called on all sides to stop fighting. "The Government of South Sudan must stop obstructing humanitarian assistance and ensure the safety and security of all humanitarian aid workers".

The aid worker, Peter Alex, was South Sudanese and a Nairobi-based spokeswoman for the World Food Programme.


"We as the government are aware of the challenges that are facing us in terms of security, whether insecurity to aid workers or even to our own citizens".

The assault in the town of Leer, which lies in an oil-producing region, was repelled by Ghanaian peacekeepers.

Between 11pm and midnight on Wednesday, the Mission's Temporary Operating Base (TOB) in Leer town in the former Unity State came under small arms attack from the direction of the nearby Government-held town.
