Nick writes in with word that a Spanish aid worker was shot
and wounded in eastern Chad. The 37-year old female UNICEF employee was shot in the arm (she is in serious condition in a hospital in N'Djamena) while the assailant made off with her jeep. Additional details here
. The security environment in the area continues to erode with numerous robberies and vehicle thefts.
Best wishes and a speedy recovery to the UNICEF staffer.
