UNHCR driver killed in DR Congo

The United Nations Refugee agency says that one of its drivers has been killed in the west of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In a statement, the UNHCR said that the driver Jose Djamba was shot in the town of Kimpese two-hundred kilometers south of Kinshasa by four uniformed men who stopped him and demanded his vehicle.

It's the fifth killing of a UNHCR employee worldwide since September. Three UNHCR workers were killed in West Timor, and one was killed in Guinea.
