UNAMID peacekeepers

A peacekeeper for the joint United Nations-African Union in Darfur (UNAMID) has been killed following an attack on a patrol near Nyala in South Darfur on Sunday.

Two others were injured.

The attack comes one month after three peacekeepers were killed in an ambush in North Darfur.

The UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, condemned the attack and called on the Sudanese government to bring to justice those responsioble for the act.

Over 30 UNAMID personnel have died as a result of hostile actions since the mission took over from an earlier AU peace force at the start of 2008.
