JUBA (Reuters) – A British aid worker has been shot dead in South Sudan’s capital Juba, a spokesman for the presidency said on Wednesday.

Ateny Wek Ateny said the Briton had been killed outside his home at around midnight on Tuesday night. It was not clear which organisation he worked for or why he might have been killed.

“The investigation is under way,” Ateny said.

Britain’s Foreign Office confirmed that a Briton had been killed but gave no details.

South Sudan, which became independent in 2011, has been riven by conflict since December 2013. A dire humanitarian situation has drawn in many international aid groups to help provide food, medical care and other support to the population.

Thousands of civilians have been killed and more than 1.5 million people displaced in fighting between President Salva Kiir’s troops and rebels loyal to his former deputy, Riek Machar.
