A UN peacekeeper was killed in Darfur, the first UN casualty since the world body began sending small reinforcements to a beleaguered African Union force deployed in the violent western Sudan region, the African Union and the United Nations said Saturday. The UN peacekeeper, an Egyptian Lt. Col., was shot by unidentified gunmen who looted his house in El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur state, late Friday. He died hours later in an AU hospital at the African force's nearby headquarters, the AU said.
