May 8, 2007

Kabul, May 8 (Xinhua) A UN staff member was shot dead Tuesday in volatile Kandahar province of southern Afghanistan, a statement of the UN Assistance Mission said.

Sadequllah, 38, who was a driver for the UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, was killed apparently by gunmen on a motorbike at around 7 a.m. on his way to his office in Kandahar, the statement said.

'The safety and well-being of those Afghan and international staff who work for the UN in Afghanistan is a matter of paramount importance to us,' said Tom Koenigs, the special representative of the UN Secretary-General for Afghanistan.

On April 17 four Nepalese security guards and an Afghan driver working for a UN agency were killed in a roadside bomb in Kandahar.
