Unknown armed men have ambushed a peacekeeping patrol with the hybrid United Nations-African Union mission in the war-torn Darfur region of Sudan, injuring one of the blue helmets and stealing a vehicle. The mission, known as UNAMID, reported that a group of Nigerian peacekeepers were on patrol about 5:45 p.m. in the evening near the Geneina Super Camp in West Darfur state when they were ambushed by a group of men armed with rocket-propelled grenades and AK-47 assault rifles.
