Attacks have led Medecins Sans Frontieres to shutter its aid operations in Somalia. "The closure of our activities is a direct result of extreme attacks on our staff, in an environment where armed groups and civilian leaders increasingly support, tolerate or condone the killing, assaulting and abducting of humanitarian aid workers," said MSF President Unni Karunakara. Meanwhile, MSF aid workers in the Democratic Republic of Congo are receiving threats and the group has suspended its operations there.
