7 UN Peacekeepers Killed in Attack

What sort of monsters murders peacekeepers? An ambush on a United Nations patrol in South Darfur today left seven peacekeepers dead along with 17 military and police personnel. In the deadliest attack the international effort has experienced since it arrived in the region in 2008, the team came under heavy fire from an unidentified group armed with machine guns and possibly rocket-propelled grenades, according to a spokesman for the UN. A representative for the mission has condemned the heinous attack and warned those guilty for the ambush that, "the perpetrators should be on notice that they will be pursued for this crime and gross violation of international humanitarian law."
