Sudan: Unamid Condemns Attack

on Convoy Causing Death of Peacekeeper

The African Union-United Nations Mission
in Darfur (UNAMID) strongly condemns
the attack on a convoy carrying
UNAMID civilian and military personnel
by six to eight armed men in El Geneina
on the evening of Monday 28 September
at around 1845 hours that caused
the death of one peacekeeper.

The incident took place on the road
from UNAMID super camp in El Geneina
and the city.

The Mission is appealing to the Sudanese

authorities to speedily investigate

this wanton incident to bring

the perpetrators to justice.

UNAMID emphasizes that peacekeepers

are in Darfur to assist in restoring peace

and stability to the region.

Any attack on peacekeepers is

an attack on peace itself.

Targetting UN personnel can

potentially have negative

consequences for the peace process.

Since the inception of UNAMID in

January 2008, fourteen military personnel

and three civilian police have been

killed as a result of hostile attacks.
