UN Condemns Killing of Rwandan Peacekeeper in Darfur

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Sunday condemned “in the strongest terms” the latest attacks against a peacekeeping mission in Sudan’s Darfur region, which left a peacekeeper dead.

“The Secretary-General was deeply disturbed to learn of another attack today by unidentified armed assailants on a convoy of the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) near Kabkabiya, North Darfur, in which one Rwandan peacekeeper was killed,” said a statement issued here by Ban’s spokesperson on Sunday night.

Ban expressed his sincere condolences to the family of the fallen peacekeeper, and to the government of the Republic of Rwanda. He expected the Sudanese government to take swift action to bring the perpetrators of this and previous attacks on UNAMID to justice.
