Violence against aid workers

A "tweet" I received yesterday said, "2008 most deadly on record for aid workers." These are not attacks on enemy combatants, or enemy armies. They are not even attacks on innocent civilians. They are attacks against innocent people who are just trying to help other innocent people in need of food or medical care.

There is something truly sick about people who are so evil they will attack humanitarian aid workers. "Sudan (Darfur), Afghanistan and Somalia – accounted for more than 60% of violent incidents and aid worker victims" (Hat tip: Kevin I)
