UN peacekeeper killed in Darfur

Peacekeepers of the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID)

An African Union-United Nations peacekeeper in Sudan's troubled Darfur region has been killed after unidentified gunmen ambushed a patrol Wednesday.

UNAMID, the joint AU-UN Mission in Darfur, says three other peacekeepers were injured in the attack which took place near the town of Shearia.

At least 36 UNAMID peacekeepers have been killed since the mission took over from an earlier AU peace operation at the start of 2008.
