Peacekeeper shot dead in Sudan's Darfur region

KHARTOUM - An international peacekeeper was shot dead by unknown gunmen in an eastern part of Sudan's Darfur region, the joint African Union-United Nations peacekeeping mission (UNAMID) said.
The killing brings the total number of peacekeepers killed in Darfur since 2007 to 44, a UNAMID spokesman said.
War broke out in Darfur in 2003 when rebels took up arms against the central government, accusing Khartoum of neglecting the remote region and marginalizing its ethnic minorities.
