United Nations: United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres strongly condemned the looting of the main compound of the World Food Programme (WFP) in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, over the weekend, a UN spokesman said on Monday.

“The secretary-general reiterates the need for parties to protect and respect humanitarian workers and facilities, including hospitals,” Farhan Haq, deputy spokesperson for Guterres, said in a statement.

“Civilians and civilian infrastructure must be protected in order to save lives,” he added.

In the statement, Haq noted that the looting of the WFP compound was the latest violation of humanitarian facilities since the start of the crisis in Sudan, which is in its fourth week.

Most, if not all, UN agencies and its humanitarian partners have been impacted by large-scale looting, said Haq.
