A US diplomat was shot while riding in a car here Tuesday in an attack that also killed the official's Sudanese driver, the US Embassy said. The shooting came a day after a joint African-United Nations force took over peacekeeping duties in Sudan's violence-torn Darfur region - but it was unclear if the attack was targeted, or a random crime. "Early this morning ... an American officer with the US Agency for International Development was shot and wounded," said Walter Braunohler, the public affairs officer at the US Embassy in Khartoum. "A locally-employed Sudanese national was killed in the same incident."
