A United Nations’ peacekeeper from Sierra Leone was killed and another seriously wounded when their vehicle was attacked by gunmen in the Darfur region of Sudan on Friday, the United Nations said.

The attack took place in Duma village, 37 km northeast of the town of Nyala, when four gunmen opened fire on the vehicle carrying five soldiers serving with the joint U.N.-African Union force in Darfur, the U.N. said.

Earlier this week, four Ethiopian peacekeepers deploying to Sudan’s contested Abyei region died in a land mine explosion, three of them after Sudan refused requests to let them be flown out of the region for medical care, according to UN officials.
