Four peacekeepers of the joint African Union-United Nations mission serving in Darfur have been missing for more than 24 hours, the U.N. said. Their disappearance is causing serious concerns over the safety and welfare of the mission.
The four were reportedly last seen 4 p.m. local time of April 11 as they left their team camp located near Nyala in South Darfur. They were headed to their private accommodations some seven kilometers away but they never reached their destination, the U.N. said. The joint mission said it already deployed troops and resources to locate the peacekeepers.
