Statement by Anthony Lake, UNICEF Executive Director, on the bombing of UN HQ in Abuja, Nigeria

New York, 26 August 2011 – “Exactly one week ago, on World Humanitarian Day, we commemorated the bravery of our colleagues who, over the years, had lost their lives or been injured working to save and enhance the lives of children.  Sadly, outrageously, today the United Nations and UNICEF have lost more of our colleagues, working in the same cause.


Here at UNICEF, we join many others in sending our thoughts and prayers to the families and friends of those who were attacked today. 


This tragic event should remind us all of the courage of so many other aid workers who face similar dangers and who are doing so much for so many around the world.”
