U.S. official badly hurt in Sudan shooting

UPDATE: Goddamn it the diplomat died too.

Some pay the price even though they are only trying to do their jobs.
A U.S. official was critically wounded in a shooting attack on an embassy vehicle in Khartoum on Tuesday and his Sudanese driver was killed, a Western diplomatic source said.

"What we have heard is that a driver and a U.S. official, sometime a little after midnight, were heading home. The driver was shot and died on the spot and the U.S. official was shot and critically injured," the source told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Al Arabiya television reported that the shooting was in a main street in the capital Khartoum. It said there was no immediate claim of responsibility.
