130 Doctors Without Borders staff disappear in Sudan

CBSNews.com, January 6, 2012
Doctors Without Borders goes where others don't. And that often gets its staff in trouble. On December 29, two staff members were killed in Somalia. The latest news from South Sudan is especially worrying. Some 130 staff at the Doctors Without Borders clinic in Pibor, South Sudan, are missing, according to a statement from the group. Two Doctors Without Borders medical facilities have been targeted, and the independent medical humanitarian organization has been forced to temporarily suspend its much needed medical activities.
