On 15.11.2016. Wau. Aid worker in Wau says woman found raped and killed.An aid worker operating in the United Nations Mission compound in Wau has urged for urgent deployment of more UN protection forces in Wau site after a woman was found raped and killed near the base. The humanitarian aid worker who preferred anonymity told Radio Tamazuj that UN peacekeepers are not going out on patrol to escort women who go searching for firewood. “One woman went to the forest yesterday and never come back, only another young man went there this morning found the dead body and the lady was slaughtered lying down naked. That is now two issues of been either raped before slaughter or even raped after that,” he said. “It is the third incident of its kind, and we have being advocating that at least there should be an escort system that would prevented such brutal way of dealing with women but unfortunately it never worked,” the aid worker added
