3 peacekeepers killed in Sudan's Darfur

Three international peacekeepers were killed and six wounded when their patrol came under attack in Sudan's troubled Darfur region, their force said yesterday.
Unidentified gunmen attacked the peacekeepers late on Monday in a camp for displaced persons south of El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur state, the UNAMID joint African Union/UN. mission said in a statement.
Mainly non-Arab rebels took up arms against Sudan's government in 2003, accusing it of marginalizing the remote western territory.
Khartoum mobilized troops and mostly-Arab militias to crush the uprising, unleashing a wave of violence that Washington and some activists have called genocide. Khartoum dismisses the accusation.
