Gift Horse Alert!

Let no kindness go unpunished:
JUBA (Reuters) - Sudanese students attacked two U.S. aid workers and set fire to their office in a row over college fees and graduation at an institution the aid group was helping to run, an official with the group said on Tuesday.

The two members of U.S. Christian charity Samaritan's Purse were beaten by 28 male and female students from the teacher training college on Saturday morning, Samaritan's Purse education program coordinator Lago Joseph said.

They were evacuated from the town of Julud in Sudan's South Kordofan region to neighboring Kenya for treatment.

The students were angry over a rise in college fees and the news that some of them were not going to graduate, Joseph said.
A spokesperson for Samaritan's Purse told Reuters the two injured workers are recovering from their injuries.
