U.N. halts aid work in northeast Nigeria town after humanitarian workers killedThe United Nations has suspended aid work helping tens of thousands of people in northeastern Nigeria after an attack by suspected Boko Haram militants left three humanitarian workers dead and at least three others missing, possibly kidnapped. The suspension of aid work in the town of Rann, which hosts a camp for 55,000 people displaced by the Islamist Boko Haram insurgency, was announced late on Friday in a statement from the spokesman for the UN Secretary-General. “At the time of the attack, over 40 humanitarian workers were in Rann,” said the UN statement.
