WASHINGTON - The US State Department said on Thursday it was "appalled" by an attack that killed four Nigerian peacekeepers and wounded eight others earlier this week in Sudan's western Darfur region.




State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the United States condemns the ambush on UNAMID personnel that occurred on Oct. 2, and called for an investigation into the attack and for those responsible for the violence to be held accountable.




UNAMID, the world's largest peacekeeping mission, was deployed by the United Nations and the African Union in the arid western territory after insurgents took up arms in 2003. The conflict has led to thousands of deaths.
