(CNN) -- A local aid worker employed by a Canadian relief group was shot to death on Tuesday in the Darfur region of Sudan, a colleague of the man said.
Adam Ahaeir -- employed by the Fellowship for African Relief -- was killed two days after he had been beaten in an attack over the weekend.
The FAR colleague, who wished to remain unnamed, feared there might be a connection between the beating attack and the killing.
An estimated 300,000 people have died and another 3 million have been displaced in the war-ravaged region in western Sudan, where rebels have been fighting government forces and allied Arab militiamen, known as the Janjaweed, since 2003, according to the United Nations.
