Three People in Need employees killed in Syria

Three workers with the Czech NGO People in Need have been killed in Syria, a spokesman for the organisation said. The locally recruited employees died in artillery shelling of the city of Aleppo in the north of the country. Two other members of the People in Need team suffered injuries. The humanitarian and human rights NGO said the attack was arbitrary and was not directed against their employees. The head of People in Need, Šimon Pánek, expressed sympathy for the families but said the NGO would continue working in Syria.
