Darfur Peacekeepers Shot

Four UNAMID peacekeepers operating in Darfur were shot yesterday by “unknown armed men”.

The number of attacks against UNAMID peacekeepers in 2009 now exceeds that for 2008 – and it’s only March!

This was the first incident since last week’s ICC indictment of Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir.

Meanwhile, the US embassy in Khartoum has announced that it is allowing all non-essential embassy staff to leave Sudan.
